Colonialism laid bare

Written with much insight into the time and the place where the story is set, characters defined by a shared destiny, the surroundings so well describe you can smell it, feel it, taste it, touch it. The heroes are few, the villains all created by an unforgiving colonial system of privilege, oppression and above all suppression of the goodness of humankind, coupled irretrievable with the greatest fear of all, the fear of the unknown.
