I started to read this book without any real expectations. But once I started to get to know the characters, I found that I couldn't put it down. Not only does it deal with politics, culture and history (especially with regards to apartheid in South Africa and the situation in Palestine which is mentioned briefly), but it combines this with characters who I felt I could really identify with. Gabby, Nathalie, Charmaine and Rianne really got into my heart, and I found myself praying for Rianne and Riitho to have a happy ending.
Don't be put off if the beginning doesn't draw you in - it took me a while to really get into the story, but it's so worth it once you do.
