Reviews - What do customers think about Madame Ambassador: The Shoemaker's Daughter?

Encouraging memoir but lacking in political insight  Feb 23, 2008
I recently returned from an education/mission trip to Honduras and so was interested to find that this book is on the United Methodist Women's official reading list. Jaramillo was Ambassador to Honduras during a violent and tumultuous time in Central American politics (77-80). I looked forward to her insider's view, but found relatively little insight into U.S. policy and intervention in Central America during this time. One is left wondering what her actual role was. Perhaps she'll write a second book.
An intensely personal testimony of personal courage  Sep 6, 2002
Madame Ambassador: The Shoemaker's Daughter is Mari-Luci Jaramillo's candid memoir as the child of poor immigrants, and who, with a lifetime of experience in solving problems and fighting poverty and prejudice, earned the distinguished post of being the U.S. ambassador to Honduras. Madame Ambassador is a very highly recommended and intensely personal testimony of personal courage, compassion, and inner strength.
