Non-Fiction

The Harmattan wind scorches across Nigeria, and an old man lies dying. His community gathers to pay its respects; their haunting songs echoing in the warm twilight. Around his bed his family is gathered and they listen as he speaks his last words. Yet in the face of death this old man doesn’t talk of regrets, neither does he talk of petty grievances, instead he talks softly about life; how to survive, how to be happy and how to achieve self-respect.

 ‘A Worthy Legacy’ is a book far greater than its sum of parts; a moral guide that does not preach or command, but simply presents a code for life with a confidence and credibility that allows the reader to relate to and apply its philosophies. 


Excerpt

Life is a game
We all must play.
Not all will win.
Neither will all lose.
But he who would win,
Must have a lot of courage.
For he will have to bear a lot of pain,
And he will cry a lot of tears.
When he has risen above all these,
He will bear the trophy of success.



Professional Reviews

Sabrina Sumsion, Premier Book Reviews
This is a gentle story that speaks of life and the little things that make a big difference. The story is written with great love and tenderness that is rarely seen. This is a quick read and would make a nice gift for life changing events.

Carlie Lee, Penfriends UK
There are no clever words here, no trickery. There are no promises of redemption or divine forgiveness; just the quiet last words of a man who has lived honourably. In today’s world of selfishness and excess, those words carry a reverberation that will touch every reader.


Margaret Orford, Allbooks Review
There are some wise insights to the meaning of life, and other key points that affect the quality of the life that one chooses to live. A Worthy Legacy is a good read and it is highly recommended.
