A tense love story set amid the tightening grip of South African apartheid
About the Author
Gaby Halberstam was born in a small mining town in South Africa in the 1960's. From there her family moved to Durban, a city on the east coast, and subsequently to Port Elizabeth, on the south-east coast. They moved to England when Gaby was fifteen. She now lives in London with her husband and three children.

This story is so well written that it jumps off the page. The language and the writing have a completely authentic feel. This is an excellent book for learning about what apartheid meant in South Africa in the 70s and it's also a cracking story.
Blue Sky Freedom is an entertaining and moving adventure, which brilliantly captures the atmosphere of South Africa under apartheid.
I highly recommend this book.
