"Lindi Tardif tells an awesome story of breaking the mental chains of racist apartheid and building a life of freedom and meaning. 'Inspirational' is an overused word, but in this case it's the best way to describe her book.” — Benjamin Pogrund Recipient of the National Order of Ikhamanga in Silver; author of books about Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe, Nelson Mandela, the Press under apartheid, and Israel and apartheid; and former Deputy Editor, Rand Daily Mail, Johannesburg.
"Lindi's account of the evils of racism is moving and her comments on the way forward are compelling though I would implore us to keep in mind that we were created by God as one human race and that seeing ourselves as separate races keeps us trapped in the deception of racism." — Evangelist Alveda King American activist; author of several books including King Truths: 21 Keys To Unlocking Your Spiritual Potential, America Return To God; and Executive Director, Civil Rights for the Unborn with Priests for Life.
“Without grasping for hyperbole or sensationalism, Lindi Tardif has written about some of the most difficult circumstances of life in the most human of terms. She takes the reader through situations that would leave most people hardened, hateful, and bitter and then shows us that there is another way. It is the way of forgiveness and ultimately, the way of love. Love of life, love of family, love of her fellow people, and love of God. This book is the illumination of a path that is too frequently left unnoticed in the shadows and passed by. Lindi has a lot to say, and it is worth the time to read it, and then some.” — Dale Font Conservative Leader, Woodinville, Washington State.
“Beyond a beautifully moving and deeply engaging account of family and identity and of race and reconciliation, in Daughter of Apartheid, Lindi adroitly navigates the ups and downs of her life as a woman of color, and deftly weaves richly-hued vignettes of some of her compatriots in and out of the primary narrative. Tracing her extraordinary journey from the dusty, apartheid-era townships of segregated South Africa to the shiny spires of corporate America, the book also provides a reflective ‘must read’ at critical milieus in both these nations’ histories, serving as a thoughtful bridge between White and Black readers and those of every shade in between, and charting a profoundly practical course for both decision-makers and their diverse constituents alike toward the more perfect union that we are all beholden to. Her richly rewarding narrative ultimately serves as a call to action, challenging the reader to think more deeply and emboldening us to act courageously, moving us beyond fear and toward hope.” — Sebastian Matthews Board Director, Global Evergreen Alliance
