“I could not put down this enchanting novel; its characters pulsate off the page, fraught with the entanglements of living. There is so much laughter, wit, pain, joy, humiliation, celebration, longing, tears, determination, aching, beauty. You read books everyday and then you come across that one that just grips you and haunts you and stays with you. That book is called Adua.”

Novuyo Rosa Tshuma, author of The House of Stone and Shadows
