Overview

"An addictive storyline that pulls at the reader’s social conscience and sense of justice, delivered in an honest, humane manner." ~ Kirkus Reviews

"This book is a must-read! It is written by someone who has lived in Africa and knows her subject well... The redemptive theme of this novel is powerful... we award the novel five Doves, which is our peak rating. This book deserves it." ~ The Dove Foundation

Straight out of South Africa comes the poignant tale of Ida Morgan: her husband murdered, abandoned by God, and alone in the world. Ida’s road to healing and wholeness is paved by diamonds in the dust.

Author Shirley Mowat Tucker is a native South African who, through the eyes of Ida Morgan, leads the reader into her country's secret places... places where there are still wicked men doing wicked things… places where the innocent and defenseless are preyed upon… places drenched in the same bitterness and grief that Ida Morgan now understands first hand.

Diamonds in the Dust is the grand prize winner of Athanatos Christian Ministry's First Annual Christian Novel Contest

Meet the Author

Born in the doctor’s bed in a leper colony, Shirl Tucker spent her early years in Zambia. Despite having no access to children’s books, her love of story began with her father who entertained the family with spontaneous stories of animals while traveling long distances on dusty roads. At eight, she moved with her family to Zimbabwe where she eventually became a teacher and told stories of her own. Off on the next leg of her country-hopping life, she moved to South Africa where she met her Canadian husband, Mark. Three wonderful children followed and then another country move – to Canada this time.

In 2007, the children now grown, stayed in Canada while Shirl and Mark returned to South Africa where they founded Phakamani Foundation, an organization that lends money, with training and support, to poor people in South Africa to build small businesses.
