Rezension:

'A highly emotional, instantly readable, unusually intelligent and satisfying novel about the days of apartheid in South Africa' Fay Weldon. 'The full horrors of apartheid-driven South Africa are laid bare in this extraordinary tale of discovery, hope and despair' Books Monthly 'Incredibly powerful stuff ... it defies us to put it down.' The Bookbag 'The full horrors of apartheid-driven South Africa are laid bare in this extraordinary tale of discovery, hope and despair.' Books Monthly 'A highly emotional, instantly readable, unusually intelligent and satisfying novel about the days of apartheid in South Africa'. Fay Weldon 'Shifting Colours is a novel that brings South Africa to life. The words are exquisite and beautifully woven and the depiction of a country divided by horror and brutality is masterful... I was utterly transfixed' Anne Cater, Random Things Through My Letterbox 'Beautifully written, this is an extraordinary and very powerful story of brutality and degradation, but also of love and loss that lingers on long after the book has finished' Good Book Guide

Vom Verlag:

'This is the sweet memory of Mme, my dear mother. The first sweet memory ...Sometimes her laughter bursts into my head or I hear her call me - my name full and round in her mouth. Frustratingly though, as with all the memories I have of Mme, her face always blurs under the pressure of my focus.'Celia Mphephu works as a maid for Mr and Mrs Steiner in a leafy, white man's suburb of 1960s Johannesburg. When racial tensions in the country reach fever pitch and the Steiners plan to relocate to England, they offer to adopt Celia's young daughter Miriam and raise her as their own. But Miriam finds England to be very different to the place the Steiners have told her about. And so begins her long journey through the years, back to South Africa, to find her mother and herself. Set against the violent backdrop of apartheid South Africa and then the calm of late twentieth century Britain, Shifting Colours traces the lives of a mother and daughter separated by land, sea and heart-rending circumstance.
