On Tour with Kathi Macias and "No Greater Love"

Product Description
Forbidden romance, an unlikely martyr and an even more unlikely hero. Orphaned four years earlier when their parents, active in the African National Congress (ANC) movement against apartheid, were murdered—16-year-old Chioma and her 15-year-old brother Masozi now live and work on an Afrikaner family’s farm.
When Chioma and Andrew, the farm owner’s son, find themselves attracted to one another, tragedy revisits their lives. Chioma escapes to join an ANC rebel band in her effort to survive and gain revenge for her family and culture. When cultures clash in life-or-death struggles, Chioma must choose between violence and revenge—or forgiveness and selfless love.

Loosely based on historical events and set near Pretoria, South Africa, in the violent upheaval prior to ANC leader Nelson Mandela’s release from prison in 1990 and his ascendance to the presidency of South Africa, this story of forbidden romance produces an unlikely martyr who is replaced by one even more unlikely.

My Thoughts
Many of us think about apartheid...then again, many don't. And few of us have lived it, especially when it was at its peak. Kathi Macias takes us on a journey that will put you in the footsteps of those who suffered, bled and even died on the path to freedom.

But, more than that: she'll demonstrate true freedom found in Jesus Christ through the lives of her characters. This is epic fiction....and worthy of a look. My thanks to Pump Up Your Book Promotions for my copy!
