Set Apart (Paperback)
Jacob Modise is an average thirteen year old child, living in an informal settlement during the late apartheid years in South Africa. Until one September afternoon, nothing could prepare him for how brutally his future would change. Facing not only racism and hatred, Jacob finds himself on a journey of starvation and unbearable loss as he fights for survival through the African wilderness. It is on this journey that he becomes a man and what lies in the path of his discovery, is as unpredictable as the friendships he establishes along the way. Lucy Morrison; a dainty British police officer takes on an Interpol exchange program in South Africa. She catches herself from falling in love, becomes entangled in a web of corruption and befriends Jacob, who changes her life forever. But she soon realizes that she could never return to normality as she had once perceived it to be and as the chapters of her new life opens in tragedy, she knows that things could only get better in the future. Injustice, hatred and grief get shaken to the ground as unpredictable and even bizarre events teach about unconditional love and forgiveness, in this tragedy.
