Über diesen Titel


On a remote South African farm, elderly Zelda, Hannah--the Black woman with whom she grew up--and Zelda's question-filled niece, Ruth, deal with family mysteries and an approaching political storm

From Library Journal:

The Innocents is a brilliant portrayal of the tensions, love, and doom that pervade the lifelong relationships of three women in South Africa. The ambitious Zelda, the gentle Hannah, and Ruth, Zelda's adolescent niece, live together on Zelda's successful farm. As Hannah is black and Zelda is white their sharing the same house is illegal, dangerous. Why are they so accepting of their positions as defiant pariahs? What is the mystery surrounding Ruth's origins? And what role does the sensitive Dawie, Zelda's twin brother, play in this gripping story? Slaughter has captured for a world audience the intense sadness of the racial tensions engendered by the horror of apartheid and the bizarre, anachronistic, and haunting environment that is South Africa today. Slaughter is the author of The Banquet and A Perfect Woman. Literary Guild alternate. Jean B. Palmer, Andover, Mass.
