Oh, I love this so much Steph!!!! You put into words all the feelings I have about books as a tool to educate and inspire people, and humanise history. Your book is also on my 'To Buy' list, what a wonderful thing to bring into the world!

https://sallysbakingaddiction.com/pumpkin-chocolate-chip-bread/ Sally's Baking Addiction is my current go-to! We obviously make our own pumpkin puree though, because they don't sell it canned in SA

Oh yum, thanks for the link! I've never seem canned pumpkin in the stores here either (NSW near ACT). Lucky pumpkin puree is so easy to make :)

Yaaay! This is so exciting, and such a lovely piece.

Sad note - apparently I can't write an Amazon review unless I've spent 50USD in the last 12 months :( So for all the other readers - write the review for those of us who can't! I'll stick mine on Goodreads instead :)

Yes! Yes! Yes! And thank you. As a South African, I feel like you have put words to a feeling I have had for years. I will be buying this for my son (he is still too young but I am already stocking up for the future) and spreading the news about this book. And I hope this is the first of many. South African history is so complex and emotive and often needs to be viewed from the “inside” of different narratives and characters.

Ah horaay! I really hope you enjoy it! It's a little overwhelming thinking about which character to tackle next, but there are lots of ideas brewing. Thanks so much for buying the book
