The historical setting of the book was a new one for me. South Africa during WWII. I read a lot of books about history and enjoy them, but thinking about what it was like for the blacks and whites during this time of their own struggle of Aparthied was new. I know this book gave me a new perspective on what went on during this time period.
The ending left me wanting more and I wish that the story had continued although I understand why it ended when it did. Excellent story and I highly recommend the book.
This is fiction and even tho it might sound like a 'self-help' book, it is not.
I found it very powerful and stirring. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested
in reading or listening to something extremely powerful.
The reader is superb.
