Publisher's Summary

We don't want to tell you too much about this book. It is a truly special story and we don't want to spoil it. Nevertheless, you need to know something, so we will just say this: It is extremely funny, but the African beach scene is horrific. The story starts there, but the book doesn't.
And it's what happens afterwards that is most important.
Once you have read it, you'll want to tell everyone about it. When you do, please don't tell them what happens either. The magic is in how it unfolds.

This is an enjoyable story barring a few scenes that I felt marred the gentle melody of the story. It was very interesting and opened my eyes to some things I had not thought about much.I feel that the rape and murder is described in more graphic detail than was needed. The fear and unfairness of life came across clearly and for that reason the graphic scenes were not necessary and spoiled it a little bit for me. One other thing I found disappointing and that was the ending.There was no real resolution. It left me unsatisfied.
