Praise

“Haunting . . . a most unusual novel, in which a black South African mother dares to explain her son’s violence to the grieving mother of the white girl he murdered.” –Jordana Hart, Ms.

“Unforgettable.” –Hazel Rochman, Chicago Tribune

Mother to Mother is a stunning novel; Magona has succeeded in her grand ambition to write a story of healing and confrontation. She has written a graceful, terrible story; it is an eloquent indictment of Apartheid and a passionate lament over the loss of Amy Biehl’s life.” –Angela Salas, The Boston Book Review

“As a lament for the terrible legacy of apartheid, the novel is surely a tour de force. As a story of individuals attempting to deal with choices made and perhaps regretted, it is a moving work of fiction.” –Lee Milazzo, Dallas Morning News

“Gripping. . . . Points to a redemptive hope for those who can come together for healing, even when they have been bound together by sorrow. The writer’s own courage in writing this novel is evidence of an increasingly powerful literary voice for [her] nation.” –Heather Hewett, The Washington Post Book World
