South Africa?s beautiful landscape comes vividly to life in Message from Naledi, the heartrending rags-to-riches tale of Beetle, a little black girl who is rescued with her brother Solomon by a white man after the Soweto riots. Solomon perishes and becomes Beetle?s guardian angel, the narrator of her story. Beetle soon finds herself living in the privileged white-people?s world. Yet this fortunate new life unfolds not only for the child, but for her rescuers, as an impossible trial. For in this society, freedom is a luxury for the elite minority, the prefaces governing this freedom being merciless and disgraceful. Will she ever tread beyond the protective habitat?s boundaries and into the real world? Will her beautiful voice and songs ever be heard beyond these walls? Will she ever find true love and be released from her emotional prison?

?Message from Naledi? is a sensitively written, deeply moving, hopeful novel. A reminder that one drop of love can alter an ocean of history.??Patrick Maiden
