Change in Time... A South African Legacy

8.5' x 8.5' ISBN-13-9781478266518

9' x 12' ISBN-13-9780615759180

Author, Troy Alexander Devine (1980-2013):

 

“South Africa is a beacon to the world of how a nation can have a peaceful power shift without war and bloodshed. The tribal nations and communities of South Africa have a history which is anchored in tradition. Since the dawn of man, they have struggled to evolve within the ever-changing global climate. Their stories need to be told for their children to remember and value their heritage. Learning from their past to grow with pride, rather than resentment. We are a human race with the same desires: to be loved and show love; to be free from persecution; to be safe in our homes and communities; to be prosperous; to provide security for our family’s future; and to ensure a better tomorrow for all. To a world of labels, South Africa is evaluated on its wealth of gold, diamonds, and landscapes. However, it is the word of ‘Apartheid’ that became its notorious addition to the English dictionary and earned its shame in the world. A world of continents bearing their own burdens of contradictions, religion, and racism. They too share in the guilt of painful deflection, with their own defense of group and belief. After all, isn’t a person’s value and worth based on understanding the past, so that we may appreciate the present? Black, white, mixed or imports, they all play their role in this new nation."

 

”I am a scatterling of Africa blown far - to plant the seed on foreign continents for others to read." Troy Devine

Reviews:

“A story of love, intrigue, and realization that hope and integrity provide life’s greatest riches.” Laurel Baker, Senior Editor

 

“In A Storm in Paradise, Christina is raising her son at a distance from her former husband, a charming, manipulative, self-made financier, when her ex dies suddenly in an unexplained accident - and his new wife produces a suspect will, disinheriting his only son. Christina and young Mark face the battle of their lives as they take on slack officials, duplicitous lawyers, and a scheming widow. As the two unflinching characters pull together their strengths and loyalties and refuse to give in, the reader will cheer them on in the battle of their lives.” Martha Moffett, Author & Editor

 

“A Storm in Paradise kept me on the edge of my seat. I could not put the book down until it was finished... Very well done!” Barbara Jones, Author & Editor
