BLUEFIRE By Phyllis A. Whitney


Written during South Africa apartheid period, the details are accurate. I find the idea dreadful. Susan Hohenfield returns to Cape Town as the bride a childhood friend and her Father’s ward. Her Mother left the family home taking right-year-old Susan so with her. Susan has forgotten the events before they left. She does have a faint memory of angry voices. Susan learned that her Father went to prison for diamond smuggling and that special diamond, Bluefire in her Father’s procession disappeared at the same time. I
Susan soon finds evidence that diamond smuggling is still occurring and it points to her Father. Her husband distanced himself from her and she becomes dependent on the man who sent her Father to prison. Susan must find the answer before civil disobedience begins. I recommend this book.

    Sounds like a really interesting book. I recently read another book about S. African apartheid called Child of the River. You might like it, too.

    Apartheid and the diamond mines are difficult themes, but it sounds like a fascinating historical novel.
