Description

Silhouettes of a Treasured Heritage is a fictional narrative, which examines the consequences of being a person of racially mixed parentage in our world today. It is a thrilling and critical appreciation of such experiences as told by Miranda - the heroine; experiences that would be familiar to many people of similar background. The novel uniquely and dispassionately explores issues from both sides of the racial divide. It challenges stereo-typical perceptions; love and hate, power and influence. It is a story of healing, of hope and of promise for a racially divided world. Miranda takes the reader through her life in Britain, Ghana and the USA. "Am I 'White' or 'Black'," she asks?
