About The Book
Doorways to Significance:
Finding Peace, Power & Passion
Born in the South during the 1940s, an African-American girl with white skin was destined to live with secrets, shame and intolerance from her family as well as the black and white community. She grew up feeling unworthy and desperate to belong. When her three-year-old son wondered why she was white and the rest of the family black, she struggled with an answer.
At age 50, divorced and discouraged, she knew she had to make a change, a dramatic one, and she did what few have the courage to do. She joined the Peace Corps and traveled throughout Asia and the Middle East for seven years, an opportunity chock full of rich experiences and personal growth. To her amazement, she discovered she fit in everywhere.
In this book one will travel with the author to exotic parts of the world as she weaves her deeply moving stories of life in America and abroad with the humor and grace of the sojourner who opens doors to a more joy-filled life.
