Carrie’s Phenomenal Journey vicariously takes you along on this wild journey of love. We stroll Parisian streets; hike the sandy roads of Niamey, Niger; mingle with people; and immerse ourselves in cultures. Sometimes we watch, laugh, or sigh and assimilate together.
“I opened Carrie’s Phenomenal Journey and was smitten with a young African American girl’s dream of an education. I followed this heroine—and I don’t use that word lightly—through falling in love to the betrayal and divorce. Carrie’s dream had not died, and soon she found hope and fulfillment in education and a promising career in education. But life was nowhere over. I celebrated as Carrie moves to Paris to study the language in preparation for her service in Niger, West Africa. I flew over the Sahara desert with Carrie, saw the blue men of the Taureg, and clapped with the colorful tribe women under Carrie’s nurturing wing. As her days in the field came to a close Carrie returns to family and creating a home in Jacksonville, Florida.”
