About this title

Synopsis:

Christina Ransome, a follower of Gandhi in South Africa before his departure, tries to protect a boy of mixed blood who has seduced a retarded Boer girl

From Library Journal:

In a Boer village in Cape Province, South Africa, in the 1920s, a ``coloured'' boy who's been taught to dream beyond his possible life chances seduces a retarded Boer girl. This deed and its consequences are filtered through the mind of Christina Ransomethe ``revolutionary woman'' of the titlewhose eloquent reflections are shaped by her own political and sexual history. A disciple of Gandhi during his years in South Africa, a feminist with ambivalent feelings about the self-denial of Gandhi's wife, a woman betrayed by her Indian lover, Christina thrusts herself between the coloured boy she has tutored and the Boer men intent upon his destruction. Trying to ``hold out against the Goths and Vandals of history,'' she becomes the focal point of the racial and sexual tensions which pervade this deftly written novel. L.M.
