Even though the story is based between London and India there’s still little pops of familiarity throughout the book. Genre and Themes I thought at first that this was a straightforward murder mystery but there is also a running theme of infidelity … Continue reading Your Truth or Mine by Trisha Sakhlecha
I met my now husband when I was 18. We started dating when I was 19, got engaged at 24 and married at 25. We were so in love and also in love with the idea of being ‘grown-ups’.

It just so happened that she came to visit a few weeks ago and pilfered this book from my shelf, haha! So then she … Continue reading Book Review : The Longest March by Fred Khumalo – reviewed by Vasi Govender
