When I started reading this novel, I wondered where the title would fit in, (as I do with all novels).
I admire the way in which the author introduces his characters, moving the story along by dialogue.
I was anxious to access the book in every spare moment and read about Makia, the protagonist, and to find out how she tackles her day-to-day problems.
Makia, who is jobless, lives with her mother, and depends on her for money. She is a single mother with a three-year-old son, and hopes to marry the child's father someday.
When the community judge sentences her to work in an upper class home for the elderly, for a minor offence she committed, she is reluctant at first to work where the guests are white, but with her ready smile, she soon gains their confidence.
Joseph Scallettio, an elderly man, is quiet and reserved and ignores her. She is determined to break down his reserve to get him talking to her. She does her research on the internet, and finds out that he was a famous musician in his youth.
From this story, I learnt the way in which coloured people speak and behave, and I am grateful because I do not have this knowledge.
I could not help liking Makia and rooting for her, hoping that life would go well with her and that Scallettio would confide in her.
I recommend you to read this lovely story to find out how Makia and Scallettio became friends, and to whom did he ask for, `Just a song before I go'.
Reading this book gave me reason to think about myr own beliefs and whether I was holding onto some stereotypes and judgements that I needed to release!
