Présentation de l'éditeur

Book Trailer:

Synopsis: A middle-aged man with the crushing weight of his American past seeks peace and a simpler life in rural Kenya. Armed with only his smokes and coffee he discovers a friendship with the most unlikely of friends- a lioness he rightfully names Malaika (“Angel” in Swahili). But she is no ordinary lioness nor is he an ordinary man. Between them they share a gift. But not all embrace their bond and some seek to sever it. Discover this new world rich in human truth and sensibility.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Malaika 2 mai 2011
Par Cheryl Keast - Publié sur
This novella is deceptively simple in its voice, but "Malaika" captures all the subtlety of man's need for honesty and truth in an unconditional friendship. This is more than a friendship between a man and a lioness. Their bond transcends reality into the world of dreams where communication is possible when language and prejudice prevent the simple joys of just being in this world. Thoreau's idea of "simplify, simplify, simplify!" works for the crazy American who has jetisoned his family and creature comforts and needs a catalyst (excuse the pun) in order to see that he is running away from his life rather than facing it. Emerson and Thoreau, as well as Thomas's friends in the village at the edge of the Serengeti, see what Malaika sees--that the ways of the world are cruel, troubling, and complicated. The lioness becomes a mother symbol of strength and hope for mankind even though it takes man time to see beyond his own selfish tendencies. This is a lovely book in which the simplicity of the text allows the reader to see the complexity of the human condition.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A wonderful read! 7 décembre 2010
Par dpp - Publié sur
For several days, I found myself completely absorbed in this novella. In fact, I actually read it twice.

Man's relationships take center stage in this story about love and the many expected and unexpected ways that it manifests itself in our lives...`Malaika' is a hartwarming, multi-faceted tale. On the surface it is a simple `read', beneath the surface It is the story of finding meaning in life when life seems to have pulled you into a shadow.

I was greatly impressed by Van Heerling's use of language and the flow of his sentences. The narrative is vivid and the dialogue is strong. The delightfully descriptive language gives one a sense of place and successfully conveys a great deal with a clear economy of words.

I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in a cozy read about an exotic place. A story filled with stories.
I anxiously await the next work to fall off of the pen of this very talented new author.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 BEAUTIFUL & HAUNTING... 17 janvier 2012

I'm afraid I will not be able to do this amazing novella justice in my review. To put it short, MALAIKA was quite simply beautiful and haunting. It is a powerful story woven by the author in masterful prose--one that is thought provoking and speaks of the power of forgiveness. This is by far the best piece of literature, under full novel length, I have EVER read, and I cannot wait to read this author's next work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Outstanding! 19 mai 2012

Although I suspected the ending all along, I was both spellbound and deeply moved by the story - sometimes a writer does such a good job that you find it a little difficult to remember that this IS a work of fiction. The story is brilliantly told - I recommend it to anyone who might need a lift from life's difficulties.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Don't Let This One Pass You By 27 mars 2012
Par Heidi Johnson - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Though generally reluctant to write reviews for even those books I have found most enjoyable, I feel compelled, following the reading of MALAIKA, to ask potential (future) readers not to let this treasure of a novella slip you is a gift to relish and savor...a keeper to the nth degree. The story is lyrical and fluid in the telling, and subtly powerful and profound in effect. From the first page I was captivated by the authenticity and poignancy of the first person narrative; in the pages that followed, the precious and all too human relationships, the dash of humor, the realism of emotion, and the elemental magic. This is a tale that has presence, almost a palpable presence, all too rarely found in today's fiction. I won't even hint at the book's plot; the synopsis that you have at hand should suffice. I will confess, though, that so great is the number of books I have in my "to read" pile, that some time had passed since the book's purchase when I began my reading and so I approached the story without a clue as to what it was about (something I do upon occasion). I was utterly fascinated and deeply moved, and finished it within a sitting. On my second reading of MALAIKA (yes, it is that extraordinary a story), I was fully informed and completely expectant and no less enthralled. With both readings did I find the novella an absolute jewel. I imagine you will too.
