Written in the form of an extended letter from a Zimbabwean mother to her daughter leaving for a university place in America, this novel draws back a veil to reveal life in Africa today, in a country attempting to reconcile post-colonialism, generation gaps and village versus urban society.

About the Author:

J. Nozipo Maraire wrote the 1996 New York Times Notable Book of the Year Zenzele: A Letter for My Daughter. She was born in Zimbabwe in 1966, where she stayed in until she was 18, and moved to the United States to study at Harvard University. She left Zimbabwe during the war and fulfilled her dream of someday returning as a doctor who could assist both Africa's economy and health care. She currently splits her time between Zimbabwe and the United States.

From the Inside Flap:

rdinary novel--written as a letter from a Zimbabwean mother to her daughter, a student at Harvard--Maraire transforms the lessons of life into a lyrical narrative about love, war, separation, and the very meaning of being a woman.
