263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that.

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot.

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond.
