NO ORDINARY LIFE Book Review By Ambassador Lyman

“Beautifully written with candor and sensitivity, evoking the highs and lows of that period, the impact on Mary and her colleagues of constant tension and worry, and the challenges in her marriage as both she and her husband become more engrossed in their work and more deeply affected by their environment. Few memoirs have captured this interplay of the personal and the historical as well as in this work.” – Princeton Lyman, Former U.S. Ambassador to South Africa, Council on Foreign Affairs,  Assistant Secretary for International Organization Affairs, Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, and USAID.
