Publisher's Description

Loosely based on historical events and set near Pretoria, South Africa, in the violent upheaval prior to Nelson Mandela's release from prison in 1990, this story of forbidden romance produces an unlikely martyr who is replaced by one even more unlikely.

No Greater Love, by Kathi Macias centers on apartheid in South Africa during the late 1980s. Chioma, a black servant girl, works for the Vorsters, a white Afrikaner family. Race-mixing is unacceptable, so the attraction that forms between Chioma and Andrew Vorster presents a dangerous dilemma, forcing them to travel very different paths from any they could have imagined.

Macias paints a vivid picture of South Africa under the rule of the apartheid system. The harsh racism of the time is portrayed in memorable detail, while the plot flows smoothly and quickly. In addition, Macias’s characters are appealing. The losses Chioma faces and her struggle to accept “the white man’s God” in particular, will draw heart-felt sympathy from the readers.

The story of No Greater Love ably demonstrates John 15:13, “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” The sacrificial love Macias’s characters show each other will serve as a reminder to readers of the love God has for them. Lovers of historical fiction, especially those with an interest in the South African apartheid system, will enjoy this book. – Ruth Anne Burrell, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
