"This account shines with creativity and insight. Readers are taken on an international adventure into the rich cultures, religious diversity, lush geography and political turmoil of South Africa during the latter half of the twentieth century; and then on to the USA. It is a fascinating sojourn that enlightens and educates as it entertains. Exotic places and endearing people come vividly to life through the eyes and heart of this Renaissance woman." Dr. Melanie Rosa. *** "Shelley Wood Gauld combines her personal history with that of a turbulent country, facts about the environment she so loves, and profound insights into different spiritual paths she and others around her have trod. The book bears witness to someone who has striven to put more meaning into her life and more 'color on her wings'; and, thereby, more color into ours. Maps, artworks and vibrant authentic prose guide us through this memorable record of a life in progress." Prof. Dr. Lindy Stiebel.
