Magical language. Wonderfully drawn characters. Fascinating narrative that stops you from putting down this book before you've read it from cover to cover.
A rich and evocative read with sensitive insight into the developing minds of young children in a clash of worlds. Tribal and colonial, missionary and ex-pat, boarding school and kraal communities are mixed together in the commonalities of love, disappointment and loss in a way that convinces and intrigues.
Excellent book. One you can read again and again
... a captivating story. Read during every spare moment!
Evocative writing, an absorbing novel which touches the emotions.
