Product description

Product Description

Fresh out of college, Shannon Wheaton signs up for two years in the Peace Corps and gets exactly what she expects: a mud hut, a boisterous host family, no running water or electricity, and endless days of shelling peanuts. What she didn’t expect was to clash so intensely with Wolof culture. In her rural village in Senegal, West Africa, Shannon is challenged in ways she never could have imagined. She finds herself riding an emotional roller coaster. Moments of wonder and of frustration, tiny successes and multiple failures, American friends and village neighbors, all shape Shannon’s new world - and her with it. Her story is an earnest chronicle of Peace Corps service, with the enduring question familiar to all volunteers: What does it mean to make a difference?

This eBook version has been specially formatted for Kindle.

About the Author

Abigail Fay graduated from university with a double major in Equine Science and French, an unusual combination that led her to join the Peace Corps. After two years of service in a small village in Senegal, West Africa, she went on to live in Japan for over a year as a high school English & French teacher, and then on to French Guiana where she also taught English. Her writing is strongly inspired by the unusual places she has lived and people she meets. But though she loves to travel, home will always be the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
