  1. I started reading this book somewhat skeptically but I have to say that it is very well written and gives some very interesting insight to the changing face of Rhodesia and then Zimbabwe Not only did her descriptions of Bulawayo bring the town to life in my mind, but I could see myself in the comments that she makes about young modern white Zimbabweans certainly food for thought.


  2. The main character turned from a miserable child to a miserable adult who needed a good kick up the back side Her grandmother s story was interesting although she made some very dubious life choices The changes in Zimbabwe since independence were skimmed over and the characters not very likeable so don t bother.


  3. I enjoyed references to Zimbabwe and Bulawayo in this book, as well as the chapter where Ellie, the main character, reflects on being a Zimbabwean abroad The book is divided into two main parts, life in Zim, life in London I preferred her first section, her coming of age and the stories of her grandmother However, the diary entries are sometimes long, descriptive and only serve as a literary ruse to move the plot forward I feel this book could have been a third shorter However, there are some ve [...]


  4. Because the novel is set in my old home town of Bulawayo, where I spent 31 years, I pounced on the book, but I enjoyed the nostalgia trip, familiar names, places, events But the novel itself theme is Family Secrets and their slow revelation The author needed a good editor The story was cumbersome, and there were too many revelatory diary sections Nice try, BR.


  5. This book takes a little while to get to the meat of the story, but the first part, going through Ellie s early life and dropping clues about the grandmother s murder not a spoiler, it s in the book blurb is interesting in its own way and full of family drama that all starts to make much sense as the story progresses.As someone far away and disconnected from my own family and home country, I loved the way Bryony handles themes of going away and coming back and the way things change This is as m [...]


  6. I love the way books allow you to travel places you ve never been to and most likely will never travel to I enjoyed this trip to Zimbabwe with the company of two ladies, Ellie and her grandmother Evelyn The story gave me a lot to think about.



  7. Very well written The author introduced her book in person at the Zimbabwe Academy of Music in Bulawayo Reminiscences and personal search of a young lady born and raised in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.
