I can't recommend the audio version enough! The characters in Peggy's memoir really come to life in the spoken version, superbly voiced by J. Karen Thomas. In addition to being an interesting story about an American secretary becoming the king of a town in Ghana, the depiction of local culture is fascinating--the pouring of libations at ceremonies and the special stool on which the king sits in particular. Opening the book after hearing the story was an added benefit to see photos of the relatives Peggy speaks of in the book.
