"Padre!" is an illuminating story of the engagement of an astute African American with the cultures of The Ivory Coast while she was in the Peace Corps.
Padre! is a delightful and oftentimes harrowing adventure as seen through the perspective of a young woman who discovers her true identity by living among a foreign culture during her experience as a Peace Corps volunteer. This bitter-sweet journey challenges “our" values to the very core. You will experience every moment and perhaps be changed yourself. A page-turner.
