RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 29301166 LA English T1 A shattering of silence A1 Karodia, Farida., PB Heinemann PP Oxford [England]; Portsmouth, N.H., USA YR 1993 SN 0435905937 9780435905934 AB "Eight-year-old Faith's life is shattered when she witnesses a massacre in her village in rural Mozambique. She escapes, but loses everything - her parents, her home, her identity - and her voice. A Shattering of Silence charts Faith's quest to find a place for herself in war-torn Mozambique, where she is caught between the white colonials and the local resistance. Karodia's fast-moving novel undermines traditional views of the role of women and the nature of resistance. It is a spirited response to the brutalising effects of war."--BOOK JACKET.
