Having lost her family, her job and her life as she has always known it, Rita sets out to find stability and a platform from which to rebuild her tattered existence. As she is faced with overwhelming obstacles, the thought that she may again, one day, see her children propels her ever forward.

Rita and Grace are buffeted by life events over which they have no control but their resilience and pursuit of a better life and a better Zimbabwe see them perservere. A page turning novel that grips you right to the very end.
