    "Much Bigger Than Grownups" An exquisite read for another expat. I relived my life in South Africa through the prose on these pages. Shelley brought back the vibrancy, the smells and sounds, the joy and pain that is Africa. The unbiased historical background will give readers a deeper understanding of the 'White Tribe of Africa'. To quote the author; 'True art is a sacrificial offering, a precious gift tremulously given to fellow human beings. The gift can be accepted, appreciated, thirstily imbibed - like sweet water from the last oasis on a parched planet'. This reader drank gratefully from this gift and in his humble opinion, considers the author to be a true artist. Thank you Shelley. Andre van Niekerk.

    "Writer's Digest 15th Annual Self-Published Book Awards" Judge's Commentary: I greatly enjoyed the artwork and the juxtaposition of the art with the stories and locations described within the text. The writing is excellent and all is purposeful. The author has truly lived a remarkable life. Unlike many life-story/memoir writers, this author seems to see beyond herself and is able to reflect on the community at large, namely, South Africa and the U.S. She is one of the most learned, brilliant people I have ever read/learned from. From cover to cover: most ingenious.

    "Much Bigger than Grownups" Through her life experiences,Shelly Gauld shares insight of a greater love and learning that touches all our lives. Though our stories are different, many of the lessons are the same. Shelly's detailed memoirs of South Africa were captivating. The life she lived as a child, the change of her country and her transition into a new culture molded the amazing woman she is today. Thank you Shelly for all your gifts, and for sharing them with others. Julie Riffle

    "Much bigger than grownups" "I am totally fascinated by “Much Bigger Than Grownups” and must compliment you on a superbly written and deeply emotional book. How little we know of the incredible journeys of our own blood and the personal struggles and private battles that wage within us over our lifetimes." Grant Wood
