5.0 out of 5 stars Kindness and courage can overcome many obstacles., 11 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Innocent in Africa (Kindle Edition)
I have just finished reading this book and have purchased the follow on book Born Singing. I did not want to put it down.

The book is written with genuine warmth and beautiful descriptive passages. You not only feel you have been to Lesotho but involved in the daily lives and struggles of both the foreign workers and the locals. The poverty and poor living conditions of the locals does not dampen their spirits. The author enriches the lives of so many. She does this with such good grace and humour mindful of the local traditions and respectful of the person.
It is testament to what can be achieved by one person who replaces apathy with determination to make a difference. She applies common sense guided by her own inner sense of fairness. The relationships she forges and the experiences she details are colourful and sincere. The author achieved this with small steps but they add up to transform lives for the better.

I have been to South Africa and travelled the garden route but relieved it again in her descriptions and can't wait to return to see what I missed on my trip.

We all feel we would like to make a difference and then forget about it, having read the note on the author I was so pleased to read SHE has set up a charity "LINKING LIVES" I know if I give to this organisation it will not be wasted on administration but will make a real differences. A pair of shoes or a school uniform means a child can have an education.
