Format: Paperback
Diamonds in the Dust is Shirley Mowat Tucker's powerful and extraordinary novel set in modern day South Africa.

Widowed and childless, Ida Morgan lives in her secure and comfortable home and struggles to rebuild her life after her husband's brutal murder a few years earlier. She rescues a young girl from a plastic garbage bin floating in a swollen river and begins a life changing adventure that will challenge her attitude and beliefs concerning the plight of orphaned children.

A fast paced story ensues with a cast of characters who pulled at my heart strings and drew me into their incredible story of survival and hope against unspeakable evil and danger. The social fabric of South African society is exposed and the characters are inspired to leave their comfort zone and take action to right some of the wrongs in their community.

Diamonds in the Dust is a beautifully plotted page turner that I couldn't put down and read within twenty-four hours. A captivating and honest story of forgiveness and redemption, I recommend this book to those looking for a compelling and thought provoking story that tackles tough social issues.

I loved this book having grown up in South Africa and leaving 28 years ago. I feel so at home reading it. Such a pleasure to find a book with a great heart. A must read will have you turning the pages to the last. This could so be a true story as it is happening on a daily basis in South Africa. Bravo to the author. Nice to read a book with no cussing.

As someone who has spent her entire life in South Africa this book both touched me and saddened me. It exposes the vulnerability, tragedy and the possibilities that surrounds our country. I read this book in one sitting.

Loved this book!! After living in Africa for a number of years I could "see" what was being written about since it was written so well. A very good read!
