Shortlisted for the Spread the Word : Books to Talk About 2008.

A highly evocative story about the injustices that took place under the apartheid regime in South Africa. A young girl, Koba, witnesses the murder of her family and is brought up away from her people. She faces the choice of staying with the people who have grown to love her, and facing exile from her people, or returning to her tribal roots. A fascinating debut.

Synopsis

Salt & Honey by Candi Miller

Offering a rare glimpse into an endangered culture, Salt & Honey is set in southern Africa during Apartheid and depicts a young Bushgirl displaced from her Kalahari desert-tribe. It is an epic, stirring story championing the power of human endurance and understanding.

In addition to being beautifully written and deeply moving , it is a ground-breaking novel, which offers a fresh and original angle on issues that have divided a continent for the last century.

Reviews

'An evocative and intriguing read.' (Chosen for Heat's top ten books)
Heat

'Candi Miller's achievement is to have written a small book with truly big themes. It's an ambitious novel with impressive range and a very authentic feel.'
Barbara Trapido

About the Author

Candi Miller was born and educated in Africa, but now lives in England where she teaches Creative Writing. In 1994 she undertook an expedition to the Kalahari Desert to visit groups of San people. There she was caught up in one of the largest veld fires ever to sweep the sub-continent, charged by a bull elephant and enchanted by Ju/’hoansi story-telling around a campfire. Salt & Honey is her first novel.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
