African Rice Heart is an earthy, candid, and poetic narrative that traces Emily Star Wilkens's journey of growth, challenge, and discovery. You too will feel the heartbeat – sometimes strong, sometimes irregular, but always present – as Emily weaves her stories of wonder and longing, tragedy and tears, and ultimately, the sense of belonging she found during her year of service in Béré, Chad.
