House of Stone by Christina Lamb is the true story of a family divided in war torn Zimbabwe. Mugabe’s plan to evict the white farmers turns ugly when the trusted house servants turn into enemies: white turns into black, and good turns into evil.
The book is a look into how race and colour transcend boundaries of friendship, trust and humanity. Aqui, the trusted children’s maid gets fogged up in the brain when the nation turns violent….she forgets the good done to her by the Hough family, and joins the thousands who rebel against the love and support they received from their caretakers.
A poignant look at relationships which become soiled by the fumes of race, caste and creed.
