“What were you doing on April 27, 1994? If you were living in South Africa at the time, you would be able to recall your day in the clearest of detail just as any American could recall their day on November 22, 1963 or September 11, 2001. Mary Byron gives us personal context for the historic events that lead to the end of Apartheid with clear accounts of both heartbreak and joy. It’s a must-read memoir that you won’t want to put down.” By L. Immel on September 5, 2018
Sharing in a great time in history of South Africa.
“The book is based on journals written during the Mandela crusade to give equal rights and voting rights to South African. Mary Byron gives us a first person narrative of the day to day living in an ever changing political climate set in the poverty of the country, the beauty of nature, wild animals and the challenges of diplomatic assignments. Wonder filled read!”

“No ordinary life” indeed! The extra-ordinariness of Mary and Patrick as individuals and as a couple is captured magnificently in this book. No Ordinary Life is powerful, enlightening and educational! There are very few books I take the time to read twice. Mary’s voice is beckoning from the pages for a second read to catch every detail. Thank you for sharing your inside, personal look into such an important moment in history.
