Sarah Culberson was adopted one year after her birth by a white, West Virginia couple and was raised in the United States with little knowledge of her ancestry. In 2004, Sarah hired a private investigator to track down her biological parents. However, when she began her search, she never imagined what she would discover: she was related to African royalty, a ruling Mende family in Sierra Leone and that she is considered a mamaloi, the status of a princess. What followed was an unforgettably emotional journey of discovery of both herself and a father she never knew. A Princess Found is an intimate revelation of her quest across the world to learn of the chiefdom she could one day call her own.
