About the Book:
LITTLE GIRL, GET UP
This is the compelling true story of Rosalie Koehler’s venture to Bangladesh in 2001 to visit her daughter, Amanda, a Peace Corps volunteer. It gives you an idea of Amanda’s life there and details a terrifying event, resulting in their unexpected evacuation and return to the United States during the September 11th terrorist attacks. This was a journey of self-discovery for both mother and daughter, which required resilience of spirit, a positive approach to life and the importance of listening to God’s voice.
