This historical novel centers on the family of Marcia and Pieter Steyn and their eldest son, Geoff. The setting is South Africa during apartheid times.
Lorry Lutz lived in South Africa for 22 years and writes from firsthand experience. She raised her family there amid the heart-wrenching struggles that tore the country apart.
The divisive class warfare, the injustice, the tension within families, often triggered by intolerance and interracial relationships, are not unique to South Africa. Those explosive issues surface in all countries and within many families in one way or another.
There's wisdom in this book. The author doesn't give pat answers. She tells it like it is and then skillfully shows how a family can resolve differences, working through suspicion, resentment, guilt, and hard times to respect and love each other as they learn about forgiveness and reconciliation.
The Soweto Legacy is worthwhile reading.

Really enjoyed reading this book about South Africa and I would recommend it to anyone who wants an 'insider' view of what it was like to live through these difficult times of apartheid.
