In Her Legacy: Quiet Confronation, you “Meet Kaman, an independent-minded young girl born into poverty in a small Liberian village. At first glance, she couldn’t be more different from Vai Sekou, a successful young merchant who’s proud of his upper-crust background. But when a chance meeting at a village market brings them together, their lives will never be the same.

Soon, their budding romance faces a daunting threat when Sekou’s parents vow he’ll never marry a peasant, no matter how beautiful she is. Yet after fighting them tooth and nail until he succeeds, Sekou learns the real challenge has just begun: making their relationship work. His brash behavior and violent outbursts might just accomplish what his parents couldn’t—tearing them apart.

Now, Kaman’s unique gift for grace, kindness and understanding is about to undergo its biggest test. Can she change the hearts, minds, and hard-wired behavior of those around her—including her lover—to create a more peaceful, understanding world?

A richly detailed, feelingly told novel of resilience, Her Legacy is about the healing power of love and liberation and the enduring power of the human spirit.” Her Legacy will open your eyes to some of the subtleties of non-formal education and the oral culture; wisdom, as perceived and applied in conflict resolution is such a context; and the difference between being a “person” and being a “human being” in these cultures. It is bound to have a positive, lasting impact on its readers. It will make a good gift for those who desire to broaden their horizons beyond their borders.
