The House at Sugar Beach: In Search of a Lost African Childhood

Now the diplomatic correspondent for the New York Times, Helene Cooper came of age as part of the privileged, dominant class of Liberia. Cooper led an easy life behind the doors of a 22-room mansion until Liberia’s civil war changed everything. Cooper’s father was arrested during a coup, and her family was forced to flee the country without her adopted sister Eunice, an indigenous girl who had lived with the family since childhood. The House at Sugar Beach finds Cooper 20 years later, returning to Liberia in search of her lost sister. Join Cooper on her complicated homecoming, and bear witness to a daring meditation on Liberia’s tumultuous period of change.
