Heartbreaking and uplifting
on 2 August 2012
This novel offers a really interesting perspective on the apartheid era and how it affected ordinary people, specifically women, on both sides of the huge divide that existed in South African society. Above all though it's a story about the power of friendship to break down those barriers, and the strength of the human spirit in the face of adversity. Whether you have a particular interest in South Africa and that period of history or not, you can't fail to be captivated and moved by this beautiful story. Highly recommended and looking forward to more from this new writer.
