Sinopsis:

This autobiography provides an investigation into the past of Gillian Slovo's family and country. Brought up in exile, Gillian Slovo retains the closest of ties with South Africa. After her father Joe's death in 1995, she travelled back to South Africa to piece together her family's past. As the daughter of two of the most heroic anti-apartheid campaigners (her mother was Ruth First, heroine of the film "A World Apart") it is a story that intersects with much of South Africa's bloodiest history, and tracking down the men who ordered her mother's killing is only one of the painful and intimate secrets that she had to face. Slovo and her family were intimate witnesses of the events in South Africa over the past 30 years and are close friends of Nelson Mandela.

Review:

The author's parents, Ruth First and Joe Slovo, were South Africa's best-known white opponents of apartheid. First was assassinated in 1982; Slovo became housing minister in Nelson Mandela's multiracial government before dying of cancer. Reconstructing their lives--often in jail or in hiding--their daughter (born in 1952) writes with painful honesty of the war inside her between admiration for their convictions and desperate longing for the normalcy and security denied her as a child. There is no easy resolution here, but great love and sorrowful understanding.
