This review is from: Every Secret Thing: My Family, My Country (Hardcover)This was a wonderful read. It was very well written and the story was engaging in many ways. I have read many books written about Nelson Mandela so this story padded out my knowledge of the ANC in both a historical/political and a personal way. The description of Gillian Slovo's parents was of two complex and very alive people whose dedications to the cause left their parenting less than ideal. This was really a unique viewpoint of a very public time in the history of South Africa. I like this author so much that I have gone on to read other books she has written with equal enjoyment.
