Synopses & Reviews
Three years ago, award-winning actress Angelina Jolie took on a radically different role as a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Here are her memoirs from her journeys to Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Pakistan, Cambodia, and Ecuador, where she lived and worked and gave her heart to those who suffer the world's most shattering violence and victimization. Here are her revelations of joy and warmth amid utter destitution compelling snapshots of courageous and inspiring people for whom survival is their daily work and candid notes from a unique pilgrimage that completely changed the actress's worldview and the world within herself.
"Angelina is living proof of the power we all have every one of us to make a difference. I was deeply moved by her descriptions of individual refugees struggling to live with dignity and hope, and found her personal commitment to be an inspiration. Angelina's journals document her awakening as a humanitarian activist and I hope they will move readers to act. I look forward to my continued work with Angelina on behalf of the United Nations." Jane Goodall, Ph.D., CBE, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace
From the ever-intriguing actress come the true, personal journals she compiled while performing humanitarian relief efforts in Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Pakistan, and Cambodia.
