I really, really enjoyed this read and would recommend it to anyone who has read Street Child as you will probably have been wondering what happened to Jim Jarvis' sisters. Suddenly a backup patrol car hits the scene, and there are now four cops investigating an allegedly busted taillight. We are cuffed and chained together again, only this time there are eight of us, led out of the basement jail and into a waiting van. She lived a happy life on her father's farm in Zimbabwe until the new revolution forced her family to give back the land they stole from the natives, and her life slowly crumbled to pieces.

Taken in by the criminal justice system, seduced by a burgeoning drug trade, and burdened by a fractured, impoverished home life, Jackson stood on the edge of failure. It was a definite page turner and I felt so much closure at the end of the book,despite feeling a lot of sadness for the main female characters in the beginning. In the sequel to Street Child we turn to Lizzie and Emily who are the sisters from the main character in the previous novel.But, Tariro is patient and although she is able to explain to Katie that the same baobab tree Katie loved on her farm was the same tree that Tariro was born under and rightly so, the land is now Tariro's again. Since I have a personal connection to Zim it was fun for me read the Shona phrases, and the farmer's slang. But her life is changed forever when her beloved farm is reclaimed by war-veterans and her family is exiled from the dust and heat of the land she loves, to the cold of a desolate council flat in rainy London.

Composed in Blain’s final years, these nine stories grapple with large questions on a human scale, brimming with her trademark acuity, nuance, and warmth. Na’ima B Robert is descended from Scottish Highlanders on her father's side and the Zulu people on her mother's side.

The girls try to help Rosie with her work as a cook, but while Emily is good at it, poor Rosie keeps making mistakes and getting herself into trouble. The beginning of the book is done in teals and blues with navy colored pencil lines - a fresh winter palette. Told with subtlety, tenderness and skill, The Secret Lives of Men displays Georgia Blain’s superb ability to convey both the joys and struggles of daily life and its impact on each of us. As an accomplished Microsoft executive, Bruce Jackson handles billions of dollars of commerce as its associate general counsel while he plays a crucial role in the company’s corporate diversity efforts.

We at Penguin Random House Australia acknowledge that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are the Traditional Custodians and the first storytellers of the lands on which we live and work. It made me feel all these things in the way that it is written with a solid historical grounded, but a sensitivity of the life and feelings of these characters - Tariro and Katie.

Now, Lobengula, son of Mzilikazi, king of the Ndebele, had grown concerned about all these varungu – the Boers, the Portuguese, the British – bothering him, wanting him to let them look for gold and other minerals in his territory. Born in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, Jackson moved to Manhattan’s Amsterdam housing projects as a child, where he had already been falsely accused and arrested for robbery by the age of ten. It’s not until I’m standing in the shower, trying to wash away the stench of eighteen hours in limbo, that the anger and anxiety rise up within me.
