PRLog - Jun. 2, 2014 - HAMILTON, Canada -- Lucia Mann's, Africa's Unfinished Symphony truly embodies the excellence that this award was created to celebrate, and we salute Lucia for her excellent work and on her winning this award.

Lucia Mann’s novel, Africa’s Unfinished Symphony, is a return to a subject important and close to her heart. This novel is the third she has written focusing on racial prejudice and the effects of slavery in Africa. Her latest work tells the fictionalized account of Farida, a child of the Aweer tribe, and her transition into Bertha, a nun of the Catholic Church. At the tender age of 8, Farida endures hardship and tragedy, having to witness the massacre of her entire tribe. With no one else to take care of her, she goes to the only place with room enough to let her in and food enough to feed her, Mother of Mercy convent. While there she studies and eventually converts to Catholicism and takes the Christian name Bertha. The world is a dangerous place, however, even for a nun. Her faith will be tested and her tribal roots will beckon once again. In the end, she will have to decide which life she shall lead. Who will she be, Bertha or Farida, or possibly someone she never would have guessed?

Lucia Mann, a former journalist and native of British Colonial South Africa, treats her subject matter with respect and admiration. Her take on the religious practices of both the tribal roots of Farida’s childhood and the later implications of her new role as Bertha, a nun of the Catholic Church, are refreshingly nonjudgmental. Mann’s journalist background serves her well in this respect, and she is able to see the world as it stands and able to inform readers without letting her own beliefs get in the way.
