My book club read and discussed this book in September 2011.
I really connected with this book, partly because I had had some experience in Liberia and partly because Cooper tells her story very well.
"The House at Sugar Beach" is a very personal story and one grows to really care about all of the people in Ms Cooper's circle.
It was great learning the history of Liberia from someone who lived through the turmoil and horror. It was indeed a personal story of heartache and triumph.Published 13 days ago by Amanda Elliott
