The story of Khadidja destroys many preconceived and stereotypical ideas about a community who has been part of Cape culture from the very start, yet which is little known to outsiders. Sachs Street is regarded as one of Rayda Jacobsās bravest novels as it explores the emotional attachments of modern Muslim women in South Africa. The novel offers an intimate and often startling portrait of a not-so-perfect Muslim family from the fifties to the new millennium.
