A friendship story of South Africa
'I think the book's synopsis leads the reader to believe there might be a little more action in the story than there really is. However don't let that deter you. The story is mainly of the relationship of two women from different cultures. They both have dealt with the loss of a loved one and learn to work with each other to accomplish a shared goal. Not knowing much about South Africa (especially in the 1970s) I really appreciated the cultural aspects and sociological aspects of this novel. The writing flows easily. I have loaned it to five women and they have all made the statement, 'I just couldn't put it down.' We all agreed that we didn't like the way it ended but also agreed that it really couldn't have ended another way. (Again, don't let this deter you from reading it). I should say that I did loan it to a male friend and he did not care for it or finishWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

South African journey
This is a gripping story of strong women who fight to survive in the midst of apartheid. Great characters and themes. DeSoto chose an excellent title with significance to their uphill struggle.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
