"RAFVR(T) Officer Flight Lieutenant Andrew Belshaw's astonishing courage
make this a difficult book to put down.
Bookworm - Air Cadet Magazine (UK)
"Sheila's book, Fly with a Miracle, is positive and upbeat.
It shows Andrew as a young man who emerges from his experience much stronger and more thoughtful
than he goes into it. It's about how a family unit pulls together and how the human spirit can
overcome insurmountable adversity to fulfill a dream."
The Courier, (Macclesfield, UK)
"'It was a miracle'. Andrew wouldn't let anything ruin his dream, not even
the prospect of death."
The Sky's the Limit, Womans Weekly (UK)
"In writing Fly with a Miracle,
Cape Town author Sheila Belshaw had a double-edged
personal mission. Not only did she want to tell the extraordinary tale of her family's
"journey"... she wanted also to give hope to anyone going through the same terrible
experience... The events as they unfold are nothing short of a miracle. Miracle or not, tough and
testing times lay ahead for the family."
'Flight path from Hell' Sunday Tribune, (South Africa)
"Sheila Belshaw has written a book about courage that no mother will be able
to put down... The book has an immediacy and freshness that makes it hard to put down."
Cape Argus, Cape Town
"A Story of Hope - although at times deeply moving,
Fly with a Miracle is far
