Bastian Bredenkamp is dead. But even the dead have secrets. From the grave, Bastian weaves together the etraordinary take of his life. Bastian, the heir to the Goedleven farm, suffers from a rare condition that allows him to remember everything that has ever happened to him since the day his was born.

When Khadeejathree arrives at the Bredenkamp's Stellenbosch home on a Thursday in October in the time of Hendrik Verwoerd, she brings with her a world from which Bastian has been sheltered.

But it is her daughter, Rashieda, who captivates the young Bastian. Except, to love her, he will finally have to tell his secret: he is not who he appears to be.

Good book good read!

Aeysha wrote the heck out of this book! Definitely different to what I’m used to reading. Each character takes you through a different emotion , a story based in the apartheid era.

Beautiful Story

Very good book, it will stay with me for a long time.
Apartheid was cruel and unfair
