Secrets of a Woman's Soul

Lutanga Shaba



In this gripping story, Lutanga Shaba takes an honest look back to the township life of the seventies in the then capital city of Rhodesia. We follow the narrator's life, into a dark abyss of frustrated hopes and lost dreams brought about by extreme poverty and the tragic battle for survival by a mother and daughter who share the same secret shame but find it impossible to help each other. With a candidness that is brutal and yet touching, Lutanga Shaba narrates a tale of strength and hope in despair. She makes no apologies nor seeks sympathy as she tells a mother's story through the daughter's eyes, delving into the reality of being denied choices, hiding shame, and dealing with life after testing positive for HIV.
