The opening pages of Zukiswa Wanner’s latest novel are very sad but maybe this is what propels one to read on. It is evident from these pages that Martin and Germaine have always been close, but the misfortune they’ve just experienced, the self doubts and belief that they failed their only son could tear them apart. “When Zuko was born, we were ready and prepared to be parents but nothing…….prepared us for this. The loss of our child….”
Just like the title suggests, the book is set in the three cities and the story revolves around the O’Malley family. It a story told from three perspectives – with Martin and Germaine making most of the narrations.
