About the Book:

Forbidden romance, an unlikely martyr, and an even more unlikely hero. Orphaned four years earlier when their parents, active in the African National Congress ANC movement against Apartheid, were murdered, 16-year-old Chioma and her 15-year-old brother Masozi now live and work on an Afrikaner family’s farm. When Chioma and Andrew, the farm owner’s son, find themselves attracted to one another, tragedy revisits their lives. Chioma escapes to join an ANC rebel band in her effort to survive and gain revenge for her family and culture. When cultures clash in life-or-death struggles, Chioma must choose between violence and revenge or forgiveness and selfless love. Loosely based on historical events and set near Pretoria, South Africa, just prior to the setting of the popular movie Invictus, during the violent upheaval prior to ANC leader Nelson Mandela’s release from prison and his ascendance to the presidency of South Africa, this story of forbidden romance produces an unlikely martyr who is replaced by one even more unlikely.

My Review:
There is a powerful message of forgiveness in this book. I truly, truly felt a part of this story as I watched it come to life in front of me. I was one of the magnificently created characters, who fought the powerful prejudiced and injustice law system and life of South Africa. Kathi Macias’ story pulled me into it’s plot, twisted and tugged at my heart, until the last page.

This story is wonderfully written with a touch of truth through out the fiction, especially the happenings during the time of Nelson Mandela in Africa. A story of two young hearts, who’s lives are forbiddened from being one, and who question God’s great love for them & endure terrible tragedy. It is, indeed, a story of no greater love than that of God for His children, no matter the color of skin.

I highly recommend this book. Kathi Macias is truly talented at creating a compelling story full of lessons, heartache and unforbidden love, mixed with the greatest love all. Absolutely a 5 star, riveting story!
