With the end of apartheid, Slovo returned to South Africa to reclaim her childhood - and to confront her mother's murderer. Delving into her past, she uncovered the parents she never knew. What she learned - about their public roles and their private lives, including their affairs - shocked and angered her but ultimately gave her the strength to make peace with the past. In a voice that makes the extraordinary sweep of history fresh and intimate, she brings sharply into focus all the brutality of the apartheid system. At the same time, she provides splendid glimpses of the leaders who, like her parents, fought against it
