    1. I had not heard of this book before I came across it on a bookshelf in Australia, of all places. It is a quick, easy read but it nevertheless quite haunting. The language is simple and clear, unpretentious and yet succinct and meaningful. The prose is very well crafted. The author captures the mannerisms of language and intonation used by a very specific group in Johannesburg in the midcentury; the voices of the characters bring to life a time and place that I recognized with a pang of nostalgia [...]


    2. I really liked this book a lot. It's a great read for a long weekend. It is a subject matter close to my heart. Want to read her other books - and she's a fellow South African as well. :)


    3. A lovely book about friendship between two girls with no obvious similarities to bind them: Min, brought up by a rejecting mother and loving, liberal doctor father in 'the bush' of Kwazulu Natal and Frieda, reared as a good Jewish girl in urban Johannesburg. The girls remain close throughout their lives, their friendship played out against the backdrop of apartheid, security police and cheating husbands.I enjoyed this book both for its simplicity but also for the nostalgia it evoked, for the fam [...]


    4. Frieda and Min are best friends who though from different backgrounds and different goals are there for each there. I loved reading this book because of the friendship that is evident in Frieda and Min-and especially in times when there's racial prejudice.Min loves everyone regardless of their skin color and sets out to South Africa, to her Father's Clinic to help out Father Ignatius, and is jailed for having refused to write a doctor's report for a black man she knows was killed.


    5. A friend suggested that I read this author, and I am so glad that she did. This is a lovely book about two girls from very different backgrounds who become life-long friends. Frieda is Jewish and lives in Jo'burg, Min is the daughter of a doctor who treats people in the bush of South Africa. It is the time of Apartheid. A great story of clashing cultures: Jewish with other whites and whites with blacks , expectations, traditions, and the importance of family. Wonderful book!


    6. What a great surprise to find a new South African fiction writer that I enjoy. Loved this story although I would have liked more details on Min's life later on in the book (no spoilers here!). Jooste has great explanations of Southern African customs as practiced by the various groups that live here - plus the two characters alternate in the narrative and are quite different from one another. A must read.


    7. A very sweet book, a bit YA for me. I think if I'd read it as a teenager, it would have rocked my world a bit but not now. For anyone who wants kind of an easy read intro to life in South Africa in the 1960s and 70s, this might be a good one. I did like Frieda very very much - I could really hear her voice.


    8. Wow, this book took me back a bit it was a very powerful read. I have heard of the author, but this is the first of hers I've read I recommend it highly





    9. Easy flowing readEasy flowing read about a wonderful friendship in a troubled south Africa. Describes the Jewish way and manner in such a positive light.
