When the author and his family moved to America, his sister, Miriam, remained in South Africa. This tale, told in Miriam's voice, tells of a woman who came of age amid the violence and rebellion of the 1980s. She saw the destruction of the hates apartheid system and the birth of a new and democratic South Africa. Miriam emerges as both an innocent child drawn into the war against aparteid and a strong woman forever changed by the struggles, brutality and politics of the world around her.
