Rate this book
In 1989, South Africa is on the brink of dramatic change. Oblivious and unaffected, Renee Pretorius, daughter of strict Afrikaans parents, leaves her beloved Karoo farm in order to pursue her dream to study ballet at the University of Cape Town. Cape Town tells of Renee's journey of awakening in strife-torn South Africa's mother city in the year before Mandela's release. It conveys the atmosphere and climate, both political and social, of an extraordinary era.
