She is scarred, in more ways than one, but her memory is a treasure trove – and her stories of Zimbabwe’s war for independence are a long, long way from the history Tumirai has heard before. From the author of HOPE IS OUR ONLY WING.
A breathtaking YA novel set in Zimbabwe about freedom, inter-generational friendships and forgiving the past. Tumi desperately wants to make the Zimbabwean national swimming team. Only in swimming does he escape the hatred and exclusion that his albinism brings him. But when he has to stay with his grandmother for a while, the trauma of the terrible thing that happened to him comes rushing back. Can Ambuya reassure Tumi by revealing her own shocking past – a story riddled with racial hatred in war-torn Rhodesia, featuring murder and an illegal love? And what of Tumi’s suspicions that she was involved in his nightmare? From the author of HOPE IS OUR ONLY WING.
