Fractured: When ambition clashes with culture, civil war, poverty, and politics (Paperback)
Sierra Leone, a country of beautiful beaches, savannas, and forests, echoes with civil wars, bloodshed, rotating dictators, and Muslims and Christians living a kind of harmony unknown to the rest of the world. Into this unlikely mix comes Thaimus' family, poor farmers of the dirt who walked 15 miles to sell their crops and go to school. Fractured is the true story of Kadie and Mansa, Jeneba and Musa, children and grandchildren, and the culture they lived. Despite heartbreak, extreme poverty, corrupt politics, and nearly losing lives to rebel forces, these people moved through their lives with elegance and grace. Fractured shows readers little known places and times and takes us on a journey few have traveled.
