"Irene Staunton must have borrowed God's eyes for a while to get as close as she did to the pulse of a story so human that its warmth is almost visibly glowing." -- Weekly Mail"Together, these stories are a powerful and eloquent tribute to the suffering and triumph of the Zimbabwean liberation struggle." -- Choice"These are inspiring stories of resilience and courage in circumstances too horrifying for most Western readers even to begin to imagine." -- The Women's Review of Books"This book provides a unique perspective on the daily life of women in war... " -- WLW JournalThese first-hand accounts from thirty women directly affected by the Zimbabwean liberation war depict courage, endurance, pain, and a different sort of struggle. They reveal as much about the people's true expectations of independence as they do about their post-independence delights and disappointments.
