內容簡介

Mercy lives in modern-dayPietermaritzburg, South Africa with hereccentric foster aunts—twoelderly sisters so poor that they can only affordone lightbulb. A nasty housing developer is eying their house. And thatsame house suddenly starts falling apart—justas Aunt Flora does, too. She’sforgetting words, names, and even how to behave in public. Mercy tries tokeep her head down at school so nobody notices her. But when a classmateframes her for stealing the school’s raffle money, Mercy’s teachers decide totake a closer look at her home life.Along comes Mr. Singh, who rents the back cottage of the house onHodson Road. When he takes Mercy to visit a statue in the middle of thecity, she learns that the shy, nervous “Mohandas” he tells stories about isactually Gandhi, who spent a cold and lonely night in the waiting room ofthe Pietermaritzburg train station over a hundred years earlier. It markedthe beginning of his life’s quest for truth, and the visit to his statue marksMercy’s realization that she needs—justlike Gandhi—tostand up forherself.Mercy needs a miracle. But to summon that miracle, she has to find hervoice and tell the truth—andthat truth is neither pure nor simple.
