The characters divulge the intensity in their anger, unhappiness, grief and soreness, at once and bluntly. yet there's additionally nice love, heat, and generosity of spirit in the direction of one another and in the direction of these whites who, over the generations, have enjoyed and attempted to assist them. The e-book is wealthy with insights into customs, conventional ideals, practices and tradition; and funny observations of what the protagonists regard as absurd white behaviour and demands.'
