A well written account about a Ghanaian consulate secretary living win Washington D.C. who is invited to a small village in Ghana as it's next King. This should be prescribed as required reading in all B schools. The tact and skill that she employs to turn this impoverished village around, deal with rampant corruption and a host of other personal and community issues, make it one compelling read.

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
King Peggy was born in Ghana, moved to the USA and became an American citizen. She got astonishing news one day; her uncle had been king of a poor and small town in Ghana and upon his death, the author was selected to become their king. She accepted and faced a mountain of obstacles; roads needed to be paved, a source of clean drinking water found, her uncle needed to be buried as fitting a king, and the looting of the town's treasury needed to be stopped. King Peggy was up to the challenges. ( )

The people behind this book made one of the strangest style decisions I can remember. Despite the fact that this is an autobiography, it's told in third person, and in a really distant manner. I'm not sure why this decision was made, but it made it really difficult to get into the story, which otherwise should have been very interesting: a woman who has lived in America for decades becomes the king of her tiny Ghanaian village. Unsurprisingly, that village is full of chauvinist pigs. Trouble and feminism ensue. If only the book had been written in first person, or in a personal third person way, that we could really get to know Peggy and the trials she went through. ( )
