“A wise man once said that the shortest distance between the human heart and the truth is a story.” So begins the story of Nakedi Mngadi’s life, told with searing honesty and beautiful insight into the mysteries of the heart.
From her earliest memories, Nakedi’s life was motivated by a misguided resentment of her mother. Against the backdrop of South Africa, her upbringing as a Jehova’s Witness, and her wry observations on life as a black woman in that time and place, she takes us on her journey from toxic bitterness to understanding—of her mother and her own mission in life—and how she ultimately found freedom in the unlikeliest of places.
Nakedi’s story will open your eyes, break your heart, and set you free. It just might change your life forever.
