"Persomi is young, white, and poor, born the middle child of illiterate sharecroppers on the prosperous Fourie farm. Persomi's world is extraordinarily small ... Her older brother Gerbrand is her lifeline and her connection to the outside world. When he leaves the farm to seek work in Johannesburg, Persomi's isolated world is blown wide open. But as her very small world falls apart, bigger dreams become open to her-- dreams of an education, a profession, and of love. As Persomi navigates the changing world around her--the tragedies of WWII and the devastating racial strife of her homeland--she finally discovers who she truly is and where she belongs"-- Provided by publisher.

Interesting look at South Africa at the beginning of apartheid. Written in form of a historical romance novel, so light.
