** spoiler alert ** This is a wonderful, beautifully written story that really makes you think about life. It is not a book that you can quickly flip through. It does take complete attention to get the full meaning of the author's words.

I felt like I was along the search as Kumalo sought for his son in Johannesburg. I could feel his worry, pain frustration. The injustices of South Africa were vividly portrayed. I hurt with both Kumalo when he found out the awful crime his son had committed and with Jarvis when he heard the news of his son's death. But I also felt hope as Kumalo and Jarvis worked together to do their part to help rebuild South Africa.
