What if our best effort turns into our worst nightmare?
In this colourful and humorous travelogue, a little faith goes a long way.
In Child Witch London, the second part of this two-volume novel, friendship and fear collide in the peaceful setting of suburban UK.
Frank returns to England from Congo. His cosy routine spins out of control, family life implodes, and tragedy strikes. Is it bad luck or black magic? Retribution by sorcery for betraying Dudu, the homeless street kid he befriended in Kinshasa?
"If you liked The Poisonwood Bible, then Child Witch is for you." - Mail & Guardian, Johannesburg
"Gives profound insights into three very different ways of life: the incomprehensible bureaucracy of international charity work; the difficulty of bringing up kids in the UK; and the life of a street kid in one of Africa's most screwed up nations. This tricky issue is handled deftly. The novel is peppered with Mike Ormsby's cynical Scouse humour and never gets boring." - Huffington Post
"The exotic sounds, smells and sights of the Congo bring Child Witch vividly to life. It's a compelling story built around strong characters in a world that makes readers question their own beliefs and motives." - Liverpool Echo
"Excellent. Excellent. I loved this funny, adventurous, and heartwarming book. Ormsby writes with humor, sensitivity and empathy, from personal experience. For any reader craving good fiction, more than simple entertainment. Highly recommended." - Tracy A. Fischer, Readers' Favorite
