Two characters who normally would never meet because of apartheid in South Africa come together. Robin is grieving the loss of her parents who were murdered during the Soweto uprisings. Beauty, whose own daughter, Nomsa, is missing during the uprisings, becomes Robin’s caregiver. Beauty’s love for Robin helps to ease the pain. Robin helps Beauty with her loss.  Robin knows that if Beauty finds Nomsa, she will lose her caregiver. Robin’s decision could have devastating consequences. This book is a story of self-discovery and making amends for one’s decisions.
