Love against all odds.

I definitely enjoyed this gem. What I love about it is that it pulls in your emotions because it has so many emotions involved. The characters are realistic, and the events are unpredictable. The conflicts in Lubabalo and Blue's relationship make you reflect on these significant issues that affect us every day be it allegiance, family, religion and homophobia. It is a beautifully written story. Would recommend.

When love sees no gender, colour and age this book is what its about. Self discovery, self-worth and healing within your soul are the order of the day. I love how the author took time to do research on her characters and put this book together in a context that enable's you to appreciate our South African writers. Well done and Thank you.
