This books was beautifully written, capturing and humanizing a complex and heartbreaking page of history.

On an isolated South African farm, at the height of apartheid, a series of tragedies leave a white farm woman and the daughter of her maid in desperate circumstances. The friendship that grows between them is dangerous and ultimately impossible.

One of the most depressing books I have ever read. Reminds me of The Kite Runner where you get to a point and say well nothing worse can happen now can it?The story consists of one depressing scenario after another
