"under the same moon" :
i've been indulging in some african themed books of late
i'm blaming it on my brother in law and his family moving to malawi next year
this is a great read!
set in the contrasting cultures of mozambique and the usa,
kelli masterfully weaves characters, storyline and suspense.
well-researched and sensitively written,
she respectfully depicts african life and culture
whilst contrasting it to western concepts of community and family.
her characters have emotional depth and flaws.
the resolution is not picture perfect,
making it all the better, in my opinion.
i literally couldn't put it down last night -
ploughing through the last half of the book till the wee hours.
