Evening Primrose

by Kopano Matlwa - £8.99  Hodder & Stoughton (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781473662285 | ISBN 10: 1473662281

Compelling and heart-wrenching, Evening Primrose explores issues of race, poverty and gender in post-apartheid South Africa through the eyes of a junior doctor.
 
When Masechaba finally achieves her childhood dream of becoming a doctor, her ambition is tested as she faces the stark reality of South Africa's public healthcare system.
 
As she leaves her deeply religious mother and makes friends with the politically-minded Nyasha, Masechaba's eyes are opened to the rising xenophobic tension that carries echoes of apartheid.
 
Battling her inner demons, she must decide if she should take a stand to help her best friend, even it comes at a high personal cost.
