Publisher's Description

Forbidden romance, an unlikely martyr, and an even more unlikely hero Orphaned four years earlier when their parents, active in the African National Congress (ANC) movement against apartheid, were murdered—16-year-old Chioma and her 15-year-old brother Masozi now live and work on an Afrikaner family’s farm. When Chioma and Andrew, the farm owner’s son, find themselves attracted to one another, tragedy revisits their lives. Chioma escapes to join an ANC rebel band in her effort to survive and gain revenge for her family and culture. When cultures clash in life-or-death struggles, Chioma must choose between violence and revenge—or forgiveness and selfless love. Loosely based on historical events and set near Pretoria, South Africa, in the violent upheaval prior to ANC leader Nelson Mandela’s release from prison in 1990 and his ascendance to the presidency of South Africa, 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
