A Shattering of Silence (Penguin African Writers). Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: 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 brutalizing effects of war.
About the Author: Farida Karodia was born and raised in a small town in South Africa, which was to provide the setting for her first novel, Daughters of the Twilight. She has taught in South Africa and Zambia; and in Canada, she has written radio dramas for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. She is the author of Daughters of the Twilight, which was short-listed for the Fawcett Prize, Coming Homes and Other Stories, Against an African Sky, Other Secrets and Boundaries.
