There’s nothing like being talked well of, especially if it’s by The Wall Street Journal. The prestigious New York based publication wrote a review online this past Friday that appeared under Books & Ideas.

The review compared David Sacks, True Africa, to Charles Dickens literary masterpieces Oliver Twist and Great Expectations. The reviewer, Balthazar Korab says,

“A certain Dickensian sentimentality is unavoidable in portraits that show children facing down hard times with serenity and smiles, like that of a boy in a school uniform playfully leaping in front of a peeling but colorful mural of Africa.”

Korab captures a unique perspective of the photographs in Uganda, Zambia, and Ethiopia. Be sure to read the rest of his review and purchase a copy of the book on Covenant Mercies website.
