Summary
This astonishing autobiographical work is the story of a young Australian woman's complex love affair with Africa and its people. Sandy Blackburn-Wright lived and worked in South Africa between 1988 and 2003 - years coinciding with some of the nation's most tumultuous and significant events, including the release of Nelson Mandela. As a social worker in the townships she witnessed the brutality of life under the apartheid regime; at the same time she was bewitched by the uncrushable spirit of the people; the richness of the culture; the beauty of the land. Through her work she met her husband Teboho, and began the next phase of her life as part of an extended and welcoming traditional, rural black South African family
