A collection of stories by

 
 
Whether set in Cape Town, Johannesburg or the remoteness of lonely farms, these stories present an acute and heartfelt sensitivity for the troubles of ordinary people during apartheid. They provide a rare historical record of the times, revealing the hopes and dreams of people of all races, that are only now becoming a reality. Dora Taylor's powers of observation enable her to conjure up the vibrancy of a city, the squalor of a shanty town or the peace of the veld. Although the stories are often heart-rendingly tragic, there is always an underlying quality of hope, springing from the author's intense desire that things should improve, an objective to which she devoted her life.
