Review of "East African Odyssey", by Emilee Hines

Review by Lana Hendershott:

I enjoyed reading Emilee’s personal account as a young American woman teaching in Kenya. In the early 1960s many young college graduates were joining the Peace Corps, but Ms. Hines focused on teaching young adult Africans to become teachers themselves while she learned about the country in the process. The author's honesty and naiveté shines through as she admits her misgivings, social blunders and her love affair with two very different men: Rico, a jealous Italian and Ray, an Englishman. The afterward offers closure as the reader learns the fate of her friends years later. The author's love and respect for Africa is revealed in her physical descriptions of the country but is balanced by the reality of the country's problems. One has the sense this East African teaching experience had a lasting influence on the author. 

Click on the titles, East African Odyssey, and The Proposal, to listen to the author's books on Audible.com.

EMILEE HINES, AUTHOR REQUESTS HELP

I want to create a blog, but there are no instructions on how.  I am a member of Netwest and a much-published author, traditional (for advance + royalties), print-on-demand, Createspace and the old way of self-publishing (taking copy to the printer, picking up books and selling them).  I have 9 books in print, all listed on Amazon, as well as some out-of-print books (Old Virginia Houses series).
 
I’d like to start a blog based on my latest book, TIL DEATH DO US PART, which has wide appeal for retirees in western NC and elsewhere.  It helps readers prepare for the death of a spouse (or their own death), legally, financially,
medically and emotionally.  I had a workshop here at Carriage Park last Wednesday night for 34 attendees, talking about “your property”.
Tomorrow night’s workshop is on “your body” and will cover medical records, living will, medical directive, medivac insurance,
organ/body donation, cremation vs. burial, and types of funeral services.
 
Deciding what to call the blog is difficult.  People don’t like to think of death, and seldom “go looking” for books on it.
 
I have ads running onscreen and online at Flat Rock Cinema, and sales brochures are displayed in the lobby.
 
Please help me get the blog named, posted and underway.  Thanks.
