Book Review: Sister-Sister by Rachel Zadok

Barefoot Whispers

Sister-Sister. “One-for-me-and-one-for-you.” In childhood Thuli and Sindi are inseparable, pinkie-linked by a magic no one else can understand.

Thuli and Sindi are children of the new South Africa. Now-South Africa, that is alike and yet unlike the one we know. The cities are the same, and the people are the same; even the diseases are the same, but subtle differences in transport, business, crime and religion give their story a mystical quality.

Two little girls are raised in poverty, with no other family but their mother. Then a strange uncle arrives, sharing news that will change their lives in ways unforeseeable. This novel skillfully interweaves myth, culture, magic and crime into a tale of delicate suspense.
