Editorial Reviews

Review

A beautifully romantic story set in the midst of one of the greatest civil rights tragedies of the 20th century. Anyone familiar with the history of South Africa will instantly understand this novel. For those who have never heard of "apartheid" this book will be an eye-opener. Essential reading for those who love western romance, historical romance or novels that deal with civil rights issues like "Twelve Years A Slave."

From the Author

Istarted writing the book Brakenstroom, in 1992, after a friend of mine passedaway, at a very young age. When I finished writing his story, I thought that Ishould write about my Grandfather, so that my children could know him, a man Inever met because he died before I was born. That started the flow of stories,about people I knew, and stories I was told by family and friends.
Thebook, The Vase with the Many Colored Marbles, is a story about a mother anddaughter that I knew. I promised that I would not publish it until after themother had passed on. Took close to 6 years to write, edit, rewrite and PODpublish. A story that is very emotional, because I lived with it for manyyears. A story that everyone should read and learn how terrible it was livingin a country that classified those who were not born white, as second classcitizens, raised and poorly educated so that they would always be 'slaves.' 
This is a love story, a story of survival and hope. This is the story of a woman who broke the rules and never regretted it. She broke the rules and became an equal.
