Product Description

Persomi's dreams are much grander than the world of poverty and deprivation that surround her in the Bushveld of the 1940s and 50s in South Africa. Persomi's world has been extraordinarily small living her entire life on the Fourie farm, never even making it to the local village. After her older brother leaves to fight in WWII and her best friend joins an underground network of Boer nationalist, Persomi is left alone in her tiny world. She dreams of an education, a profession, a native country that values justice, equality and love. Her world changes again as the tragedies of war and racial conflict of her homeland show her who she truly is, where she belongs, and why her life and every other life matters.

Publisher's Description

Persomi’s dreams are much bigger than the world of poverty and deprivation that surround her in the Bushveld of the 1940s and 1950s in South Africa.

Persomi is young, white and poor, born the middle child of illiterate sharecroppers on the prosperous Fourie farm. Persomi’s world is extraordinarily small. She has never been to the local village and spends her days absorbed in the rhythms of the natural world around her. Her older brother, Gerbrand, is her lifeline and her connection to the outside world. When he leaves the farm to seek work in Johannesburg, Persomi’s isolated world is blown wide open. But as her very small world falls apart, bigger dreams become open to her—dreams of an education, a profession, and of love. As Persomi navigates the changing world around her—the tragedies of WWII and the devastating racial strife of her homeland—she finally discovers who she truly is and where she belongs.

A compelling coming of age story with an unlikely and utterly memorable heroine, Persomi’s English language publication solidifies Irma Joubert’s important place in the canon of inspirational historical fiction.
