I am so pleased that I did, what a life, what hope, what spirit. Sitting in my comfortable UK home, I was instantly transported to war torn Sierra Leone and to a better understanding of what effects war have on children, who have no-one to speak up for them. Her love of ballet and determination to overcome her past and the racism in the ballet world is inspiring. My greatest admiration is reserved for the woman… Sarah T. M. Bell October 18, 2016 A Light in the Darkness of a Northern Winter! This is a wonderful, inspirational book. I ordered it yesterday and finished it this evening, tears running down my face. It is one of the greatest pleasures in life to meet people of courage who are faced with huge difficulties which they manage to overcome, and who then open their arms to the world and try to give something back. Michaela is one of these. I would absolutely love to read a biography of her American mother who adopted lots of children and gave them all a superbly warm home… Cat October 18, 2016 A superb book!
