The call came mid-morning. Mother, this is Geoff. Ive been arrested. Cant talk now. Please come right away. A click sounded and the call was disconnected. Marcia grasped the receiver so tightly a spasm of pain shot down her arm. FearMoreThe call came mid-morning. Mother, this is Geoff. Ive been arrested. Cant talk now. Please come right away. A click sounded and the call was disconnected. Marcia grasped the receiver so tightly a spasm of pain shot down her arm. Fear short-circuited her breath.Everything had been going so well. Pieter, her husband, was a rising politician in the South African government. Geoff, their eldest son, attended a prestigious university. Socially, politically, financially life was satisfying. Even the racial unrest in their country didnt seem to effect the Retief family much--until now.But with his defiant involvement in an unlawful demonstration, Geoff had yanked them into the middle of a conflict that could very easily rip their family apart.Marcia was to find out there was even more--a forbidden love. This is the tale of two families caught in the tug-of-war of Apartheid in South Africa--a war that distorted their deeply held Christian Faith and even risked their lives.Their story offers an authentic look at what life was like in the well-manicured neighborhoods of Johannesburg and the monotonous drudgery of Soweto when Apartheid was king.
