Come stop by Driftless Market and meet Sandra Frye, author of the memoir African Dreams.*
Following a life-long dream to teach and serve others, twenty-three-year-old Sandra Frye served alongside her husband in the Peace Corps in Malawi, East Africa in 1969. They accepted what their Peace Corps director referred to as "the hard luck post," being the only white teachers in a small secondary school on remote Likoma Island. Sandy never let go of her desire to help others, despite battling loneliness, hunger, and lots of snakes. Relying on her passion for teaching and trips off the island to save her, Sandy discovered salvation in the friendship and love of two small Malawian boys.
Sandra's unique and inspiring travel memoir chronicles her time spent nurturing and learning from Goodwin and Hastings. From the first page, you'll be drawn to her story about love, loss, and redemption. The unexpected kinship between people of vastly different ages and cultures lies at the heart of this journey, offering hope that the search for peace is not in vain.
