Critic reviews

"I read The World Unseen at a gulp, so entrancing is it's style, so complete it's tale of love and betrayal, and so accurate it's depiction of the physical, social and political scene...." ( Johannesburg Star, book of the week)

Excellent!

Wow! What a powerful story. So hard to listen to. So sad to hear how women and men had to live like at that time in South Africa. Excellent narration. Excellent writing. Very moving.
