in most cases there seems to be alot of attention that is being focused on tambu but personally i would like to think that amaiguru is the on e of greater value and the one who is suffering at a greater deal of women prejudice and gender roles. What do you think?

Jeremiah, the father is a lazy self-centered fool.

Being a Zimbabwean myself, I am truly impressed with the author's ability to describe typical scenes that are essentially Zimbabwean and depict the everyday realities of life. The scene in which the family goes to visit Tambu's mother during her illness and Nyasha sits on a stool is a masterpiece.

Wonderful book for international high school students. Portrays role of women in southern Africa that parallels many other third countries that are now interfacing students and cultural traditions in America.
Highly recommend it be read and analyzed by high school students as a literary classic.
