Meanwhile, we have been on holiday - my husband Laurence and I explored the Coromandel - it was amazing. We live in a beautiful country. While away, I read the novel Contagious Hope by Debbie Roome. http://www.debbieroome.com/gpage3.html
Debbie was born and raised in Zimbabwe and emigrated to NZ in 2006. She writes with insight and there were a number of things that confirmed the stories I have been told by Chrisjan's family which in turn made me feel very connected. It is worth a read if you want to understand a little of the background of South Africa and the people who live there.
Just to finish, let me share a couple of quotes I found on Pinterest.
We lose ourselves in books; we find ourselves there too.
Keep reading. It's one of the most marvellous adventures that anyone can have.
