This sequel to Jennifer Friedman’s enchanting first memoir picks up where Queen
of the Free State leaves off: as the rebellious young Jennifer is packed off to
boarding school in Cape Town.
Told with humour and pathos, the theme of displacement – of the outsider – is
explored further as we follow Jennifer’s journey into adulthood, becoming a wife
and mother, living in Johannesburg and Israel, emigration, and leave-takings in
Australia. Once again a strong sense of love, loyalty and place prevails,
especially on her trips home to her beloved Free State. Expect stories about
train journeys, windmills and floods, dead bodies on deck chairs, certifiably crazy
home-help, babies, secrets and redemption, a Jewish British Bulldog and the
Messiah’s favourite place.
