Overview

Fiction. MADAME AMBASSADOR: THE SHOEMAKER'S DAUGHTER is the story of a life of success beyond all expectations. A child of poor immigrants dreams of a wonderful life of noble purpose and service to others and achieves it despite doubts, fears and lack of money. She uses her experience with poverty, discrimination and prejudice as the basis for her life's work of solving these problems, working her way up from being the child of manual laborers to becoming a U.S. ambassador to Honduras and a celebrated civil rights advocate. Despite a remarkable career characterized by distinguished public service in both government and higher education, Jaramillo shows that she remains the shoemaker's daughter, faithful to the precepts and values of her Latino family and community.
