Synopsis

Separation by Babette Brown

While Nelson Mandela spends the second year of his life sentence in prison, wealthy and privileged Jessica is out shopping with her best friend, unaware of the suffering around her. But when the mysterious Ben walks into her life, love changes her world in ways she couldn't possibly have imagined... A story of conflict, friendship, loss and hope, Separation is the powerful debut novel from author Babette Brown, an authentic portrayal of the turmoil and intensity of teenage life set against the brutal South African apartheid regime. Babette Brown's depiction of white South African society in the 1960s is uncomfortably realistic, mirroring the insanity of apartheid. Thank goodness for Jessica's grandmother, an unobtrusive heroine. Beverley Naidoo, Carnegie Medal Winner for 'The Other Side of Truth'
