Chioma and her only living relative, a younger brother, work on the Vorster Farm in South Africa. She's learned to measure every word, every expression, and project the correct body language to survive. Trapped in a world where Apartheid strangles her people, she watches for an opportunity to get revenge on those she considers white devils.
The Vorster family also knows tragedy and sorrow. Indoctrinated from birth that Apartheid is correct and even godly, they walk in deception. Will the Word of God and a small journal, get through to them?
Kathi's masterful use of setting and characters took me on a journey I'll never forget. I walked through the jungle with Chioma, stared through her eyes at certain death, and struggled to forgive her enemies.
Even though, "No Greater Love," carried great pain, I read it in two days. Seeing those years through the eyes of people, albeit fictional, brought a keen understanding of something I'd only read about in history books or newspapers. Have lots of tissues on hand before you read this story.
