9781434381040: Drinking from the Saucer: A Memoir

Drinking From the Saucer" is a black woman's memoir of the blessings showered upon her that caused her cup to overflow. It's the story of a life that could easily have gone downhill, but she prevailed despite the odds. Life, for her, was not to be interrupted and she excelled as she wrestled her destiny from a vicious assault, to ground roots diplomacy, and on to grand diplomacy. The lessons she learned about life were sometimes brutal, and she recounts them in amazing detail. The happiness she knew when growing up in one room with her grandmother ended abruptly and what should have been a bright, new beginning turned into a nightmare that lasted for nine years. But then the heavens opened and blessings came down... Her memoir takes the reader on a a fascinating journey from the Hoosier State to the Peruvian Andes, to East Pakistan, to France, and then to the journey of advanced diplomacy: Haiti, Tanzania, Liberia, Swaziland, Panama and the nation's capital. Yes, she's drinking from the saucer because her cup has truly overflowed. If you dream of traveling and living abroad, but don't want to leave your hometown, this book is for you! Live vicariously through one who has done it all and lived to brag about it! Enjoy this book!

About the Author:

Charlene C. Duline lives in Indianapolis. She is a graduate of Indiana University and Johns Hopkins University, School of Advanced International Studies. As a Foreign Service Officer with the U.S. Information Agency, she wrote press releases, speeches and toasts for ambassadors and visiting congressional delegations; met heads of state, hosted dignitaries and won friends and influenced people to accept U.S. foreign policies, unpalatable though some of those policies were to her personally. Her memoir takes the reader on what is often a wild ride from country to country and from adventure to adventure. She is an avid animal lover and is a volunteer at the Indianapolis Zoo. Before joining the U.S. Foreign Service, she was a Peace Corps volunteer, and a United Nations International Secretary. Since retiring she has volunteered at the Indiana Women's Prison, and was a tour guide at Crown Hill Cemetery. She is currently working on another book, "Warrior Princess," written in the voice of her miniature poodle daughter, Ebony, who crossed the rainbow bridge a few months ago leaving a deep hole in her mommy's heart.
