This review is from: Desert (Hardcover)
I loved the different rhythmns of life which are fundamental to this book. In the evenings I often read aloud a book which my husband and I are following and the language in 'Desert' is lyrical. I cannot say that I understand the mentality of the heroine but that does not stop my admiration for her character and her ability to survive. She has the ability to keep inside herself her own stability and happiness. The blending of the historical defeat against colonial powers and the love of the people for the desert despite incredible hardships is fundamental to the building of the character of the heroine.
