“At Home Abroad is a stunning autobiography of Nancy Henderson-James’s youth in Africa. Heart wrenching is her uprooting at age 15, from Angola, whose natural world, people, customs, and languages she so loved, when the war for independence began. Nancy bravely and articulately recounts a true saga of personal loss and bereavement, but out of the crucible of conflicts between herself and her parents, the Africa she loved and the America from which she felt estranged, comes crystalline strength, confidence, humor, and self-knowledge. Her journey to wholeness, with its exquisite analysis and detail, enlightens us, so that we, too, see our own lives with new understanding and compassion and recognize better our place in the 21st century as citizens of the world.”
