About As if Born to You

This novel is more real than that. It depicts life as it is: an ongoing path that we continue to forge. It is this truth that makes this book stay with you for weeks, if not months afterwards. **** Jessica Levitt The Sunday Times

Book of great complexity, utterly readable with electric ending. Beautifully written, this book moved me more than any other has for a long time. **** Jennifer Crocker The Cape Times

I loved the writing style and the story is paced perfectly whilst unraveling all the details. **** Sthembile Mthethwa

This was a well written, well paced book. I loved the author’s writing style, as well as the character development. I’m rating this book a solid 4.5 stars out of 5. The only reason I’m docking 0.5 stars, is I wanted more at the end. I wanted the book to continue for another 100 pages! **** Simone Cameron. Read full review:

This was the first novel that I have read by a local author… and I can say with confidence that it competes at an international level. There are layers to this book that slowly unravel as the story progresses. Rating 8.5. Nadia Gabriel. Full review:

The Blessed Barrenness: ‘Wanting a child, like being gay, doesn’t feel like a choice but a condition.’ Making Finn resonated with me. I understood the sentiment, it rang true for me too, Susan’s truth and my truth about motherhood are intrinsically the same. Read review:
