Mighty Be Our Powers book. I wonder if this kind of commitment to character is lacking because she herself doesn't really know the people who carried her.
MY HERO recommends this book to adult readers. WINNER OF THE 2011 NOBEL PEACE PRIZE In a time of death and terror, Leymah Gbowee brought Liberia’s women together-and together they led a nation to peace. As a young woman, Leymah Gbowee was broken by the Liberian civil war, a brutal conflict that tore apart her life and claimed the lives of countless relatives and friends. Years of fighting destroyed her country-and shattered Gbowee’s girlhood hopes and dreams. Mighty Be Our Powers is the gripping chronicle of a journey from hopelessness to empowerment that will touch all who dream of a better world.
