The incessant persecution from Secret Police, including her year and a half ordeal of solitary confinement, and extraordinary interrogations, are mighty powerful reasons for her later extremism, if the accusations are true. I can hardly recommend a book more for anyone with an interest in fairly recent history.
It sounds like a movie, but for Winnie Mandela, it was her life. It was tragic how things seemed to turn out for her, and what the years of sacrifice and pain seemed to do to her tortured soul.
It's hard to judge whether this woman is good or evil, without knowing what was true and what was fabricated to bring this strong woman to her knees. The book gives a balanced view, for the most part, but at times seems a little enamoured of her (perhaps with good reason).
For a story so dramatic, the book read a little like a text book, not being an easy read. Not that it should have been turned into a Mills and Boon, but it was a little dry at times.
Worth a read to learn about this enigmatic woman whom I knew nothing about, other than she was married to some bloke named Nelson.
Now I really admire her and truly believe she is the mother of a nation.

Am still intrigued by this woman. A minute with her would change my life forever. She is a true Icon and very sad that Nelson divorced her after all she did.Published on June 24, 2014 by Lorato Phaleng

Great recap of the often untold story of what was happening to the mandelas who were not in prison but were suffering just as much.Published on March 20, 2014 by Hayley Michelle
I cant believe how much this lady went through to help her country. She really hasn't been given her due. This book is a good read if you want to know who Winnie Mandela isPublished on February 6, 2014 by trudy
