Product Description

About the Author

Born in 1985 in Kwa-Zulu Natal and then raised in one of Pretoria's poorest neighborhoods, Natasha (Craggs) Wright had a militaristic upbringing with both parents working in the Police force. After school she went in search for greener pastures and settled in the very wet Snowdonia in North Wales where she met her husband. They moved to Cantabria, Northern Spain after the birth of their second child. It was there, between late night fiestas and mid morning Spanish lessons that she started to write Set Apart. It flowed, from the homesickness within her - the longing for everything good and everything bad in her home country - onto sheet after sheet, and indeed notebook after notebook. Those close to her said it was the only thing that kept her going, and after a year of research, writing and wrestling with the demons of longing she completed the first draft. What then followed was a complete nervous collapse and two years of soul-searching that pushed her to finalize the manuscript to the best of her ability. Today she runs a busy household in the beautiful hills of Shropshire and she has finally come to terms with loving her beautiful homeland from a distance.

I felt immediately at home with this read-I could hear the S.A. accent and smell the dry air! Superbly written gets emotional in a real way, I couldn't put the lap-top down (first time reading a book in this way was also a success!!) Not a 'sassy' ending either - actually found it quite inspiring.
Any more coming Natasha? I'll keep my eyes out!

A fantastic book well done Natasha. Your book gripped me for three day! Could not & did not want to put it down! It's a long time since I have felt that I was actually there with those people. Some happy times, some very sad times. Really made me feel how lucky I am.

Set Apart has a very inspiring story line and is one that will leave you with a sense of wonder. The characters' lives intertwine in such a way that make the events that happen to them feel real. A very involved read that leaves you emptied of all types of emotions by the time you close the book. To me, it's been one of those stories that makes me wish it didn't end.

An amazing read - think Alexander McCall Smith with teeth! A heartfelt tale of a young boy struggling through his childhood in a prejudiced South Africa, still ruled by apartheid and ignorance, and a young English woman trying to understand this strange world. Couldn't put it down!

This passage from the book—Set Apart by Natasha Wright, caused me to relive so many happy memories and made me extremely nostalgic *sniffs*.....

'It was Saturday night and around a big bonfire sat all the campers from the tents and chalets. Old fables were recreated into tales that fooled most; of the wild, the brave, and the broken. Here and there laughter was swallowed by the open sky.'

Summed up, scenarios such as this showcase the quintessence of living on African soil, and despite the bloodshed and racial divides that still plague this country in the present day, as the setting of this book highlights—the energy of this continent will always pull at the hearts of those who have left its troubled shores.
As a South African who grew up in the midst of the Apartheid era, this story resonates with me. Decades on, with our motherland now currently in the grip of an undeniable 'white genocide and blatant reversal of Apartheid, it's all too easy to only see one side of the racial conundrum. In this poignant, unique and beautifully written story set on African soil, simmering racial tension is tempered by memorable characters who fiercely believe in equality for all.
I might add that immediately after reading this book, I rushed out and bought a box of Ouma rusks!!
