There is a clash when his uncles the chief passes away. According to their customs and culture, Kangira is the next in line but someone else side steps him and claims the crown.

Disappointed, he moves homes down about a hundred kilometres away to start his own clan. Years later he is ailing. Who fathered Richmond adopted by Kangira’s son and a young man who is at home in carpentry and wood carving as well? Why is there such a coincidence?

She falls out with Richmond. There is a party, someone has had too much to drink and they berate Richmond on his bachelor status at his age and that he is not of the Kangira family, he was adopted.

Her Heart by Tumelo Moleleki

Destiny has a way of bringing people together….

Tseko was looking at the portrait intently. It vividly captured the personalities of the beings depicted there: a pretty white girl, whose hair was held by a beautiful black woman, and a man of confidence who was facing away. She admired the hands, whose brush gave it color and life.

The man in the picture was her brother, Moatli, the master of the house, a man she barely knew because he was eleven years older than her, and he was sent abroad for his studies so she rarely saw him. The woman holding the hair of the white woman was his wife, Eletseha. She lived within the vicinity of the farm but not in the house of her brother, and she wondered why. The pretty white woman on the foreground was Nell, who interestingly shared some of Tseko’s physical traits. In fact, there was a striking resemblance between them. The only difference was the color of their skin, although for a Mosotho woman Tseko was fair by standards—the color of coffee.

She lived in the servants’ quarters with Dira, a girl for whom she had an unusual affection. She was new there, and Dira had been staying there all her life. Her facial features were familiar. She somehow saw it in her brother and…herself.

Each one was connected to the other. And as the mystery of this family unraveled, their lives abruptly changed with each piece of revelation that tore their hearts. But with each tear shed, the bond between them strengthened.

Inspired by Daniel Paul

Following his first successful and highly acclaimed book; ‘The Psychology of Success’ a 110 page motivational masterpiece that tackles issues such as how to define personal success, conditions that hinder your success, a dream that yields success, failure and the effects of failure and change that can make you successful. Author Daniel Paul returns once more with a highly inspirational book called Inspired. The book is a follow up of the first one and surpasses motivation.

The Psychology of Success was a book on dreams, desires and how to achieve them. It was a book that revitalized your once lost desire for success, but could not inspire you to carry on when you face challenging situations. We know before a dream is achieved, it passes through four stages. In the first stage the dream is conceived. After conception the dream is believed to be possible and achievable. In the third stage the dream faces consideration. In this stage (Consideration stage) the dreamer weighs with all possible discretion how he/she can approach success. In this stage the dream needs enough support so that when it comes into the real world the conditions and atmosphere faced does not choke it to death. When the dream is not prepared for it fails the moment it arrives into the real world.

Many of the dreams have died in this stage. With the book Inspired, Daniel gives you the right motivational tools that will inspire you to carry on in the face of challenges. This book will give you the right attitude you need to carry on in times of perilous circumstances. Daniel is also commended for writing the book with style that will enhance prowess in the face of challenges.

Testimonials

“I stand in awe of Daniel’s courage and determination. ‘Inspire’ is a warm, heartfelt, honest, tender and glowing book which I will certainly share with many of my personal invaluable, compassionate and spiritual harvest of redemptive insights that will both excite and challenge the reader. The affirming message of success in the book is a must read, a gem to be treasured. I have read this book cover to cover, put it down and was so moved that I could not speak for hours; it’s timeously poignant and every word rings with truth and kindness with a broader and more discerning brush that paints a vivid picture of how inspiration can take you through the pathway of success. I heartily recommend this book and its moving anecdotes to anyone wishing to get turbo-charged for greater success.” – Elijah Tembo: Brand Ambassador, Seasoned Speaker and Author of Flower of Achievement, Hope Changes Everything, Progressing in the Right Direction, The Business Devotional and O Level Commerce Course book.

The book is really straight to the point. Very readable….it’s easy to follow and understand of which one of the most important aspects a book should have is readability. It’s also very conversational. It’s like you’re actually talking to an individual and motivating them on a personal level. And the way it’s structured allows non-readers to give reading a try. It’s spaced out quite nicely. It’s not just one whole huge depressing chunk of writing. What’s in there is all a person needs to know. There is no unnecessary information that elongates the book for no reason. I found this easy to read and interesting. – Chenge Zvomuya I B.A University of Pretoria I Inspired Editorial Team Member.

For as long as you are alive, you will never be immune to the need for something that pushes you from where you are to where you need to be. One such way is when you glean on some-thing motivational. I find quotes being useful nuggets or building blocks for my own growth and improvement. There is one room you can never fill; it is called the room for improvement. Quotes you will find in this wonderful book will boost your confidence and show you clearly that you too are a candidate for success. Like the subtitle says, this book is about inspiration that you need every single day. I urge you to internalize these nuggets and use them daily. This is the kind of book you can buy in dozens to become a blessing to those around you. Do not hold onto inspiration; take part in the spreading of the inspiration fire around your sphere of influence. Daniel has given you a tool to grow your influence. Use it. – Rabison Shumba, Author, Speaker, Trainer, Business Consultant. Johannesburg, South Africa.

Book Interview

Question: What made you decide to write a book?

Answer: I was motivated by passion to see people successful, in other words I can say it was somewhat spiritual and psychological encounter. I was compelled by love of personal success.

Question: What inspired you to write this book?

Answer: It was the love of God that constrained and motivated me. We a know where to start. So, I wanted to simply lay a solid and simple to grasp foundation that even the common man can find easy to amass.

Question: Challenges faced along the way.

Answer: I didn’t face any challenges I can recall. I learned from former successful writers, so, my path was smooth.

Question: The future of this book:

There are so many plans for this book and I tell you it’s going to be first in the literature world. I am aiming to have the book reach even the presidential table. The path is lean though, but through assistance and insights from my fellow writers I know we can make it. This book is a beginning of a new error of Personal Success.

Question: Any other book or books in the pipeline:

Answer: I do have other books coming by all talking about success. There is a follow up to this one titled, “The Psychology of Leadership Success”. This book is a professional coaching tool to leaders in order for them to be successful leaders. It also paves way to defining and distinguishing between a leader, a manager and a boss.

Another one is ‘Wounded Yet Hopeful’. This book is a motivational work and speaks about finding hope after being wounded. My inspiration on this book is myself.

Question: How long it took to write this book:

Answer: Well this is a master-class manual of success, and when you are trying to engage people into believing that it’s not in the money to be successful but in the mind, you cannot craft it in days like what other authors claim to have done their work. For me it took me almost two month.

Question: What you want people to take away from the book:

Answer: I want people to take away a mindful thought that their own lives is in their own heads. They should learn to use the mind as an organ to think about ways to be successful. I also want them to understand that success is a process not a one day thing.
