The Way Home (Ebook)
Set against the backdrop of the unified community of Old Fietas and the feelings of belonging it instilled in its residents, the tale follows the lives of a Muslim mother and daughter, Mariam and Huda, who strive, learn and progress through overcoming their own difficulties in life, to attain the peace, happiness and contentment of days long past. Through their trials and triumphs, they will learn about life, love and what it truly means to belong.
This book tells a story, from the perspective of two Muslim women, a university lecturer mother Mariam and her atypical, intelligent matric daughter, Huda. The story links the past South African climate to the present one through the narration of these two characters and their experiences.
