An inspiring international bestseller; Good Morning; Mr Mandela tells the story of Zelda la Grange's incredible friendship with Nelson Mandela Zelda la Grange grew up in South Africa as a white Afrikaner who supported the rules of segregation. Yet just a few years after the end of Apartheid she would become a most trusted assistant to Nelson Mandela; growing to respect and cherish the man she had been taught was the enemy. Good Morning; Mr Mandela tells the extraordinary story of how a young woman had her life; beliefs; prejudices and everything she once believed in utterly transformed by the greatest man of her time. It is the incredible journey of an awkward; terrified young typist in her twenties later chosen to become the President's most loyal and devoted servants; spending most of her adult working life travelling with; supporting and caring for the man she would come to call 'Khulu'; or 'grandfather'. Here Zelda la Grange pays tribute to Nelson Mandela as she knew him - a teacher who gave her the most valuable lessons of her life. A man who refused to be defined by his past; who forgave and respected all; but who was also frank; teasing and direct. As he renewed his country; he also freed Zelda from a closed world of fear and mistrust; giving her life true meaning. Now she shares his lasting and inspiring gifts with the world. This is a book about love and second chances. It will touch your life and make you believe that every one of us; no matter who we are or what we have done; has the power to change. 'Uplifting. . . generally charming; occasionally faintly indiscreet; but always reverent. Surely no one but Mandela - with the possible exception of the Duke of Edinburgh - could have got away with greeting the Queen with a cheery: 'Oh Elizabeth; you've lost weight!'' - Sunday Times Compelling and ultimately heartbreaking ... her unguarded honesty allows her to tell a remarkable story - Telegraph
