Maria Nhambu, I salute you! This was singlehandedly one of the most fascinating stories I have ever read. I laughed until I cried, I cried until my heart ached, I jumped up and down, I screamed at the pages of the book as if I were speaking to real life people! This narrative is fascinating and extraordinary, it provides a very vivid account of the life of an abandoned mixed-race child in an orphanage in Tanzania. I don’t like to compare authors because I think they are all unique in their own right. However, my all-time favourite author is Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and the way Maria writes reminds me of her, she has the same ability to arouse emotions in you that you did not know existed. This book is part one of a trilogy and I look forward to reading the other two books. Blessings to you Maria Nhambu, this is a true masterpiece.
