Eight-year-old Faith’s life is shattered when she witnesses a massacre in her village in rural Mozambique. She escapes, but loses everything—her parents, her home, her identity and her voice. A Shattering of Silence charts Faith’s quest to find a place for herself in war-torn Mozambique, where she is caught between the white colonials and the local resistance. Karodia’s fast-moving novel undermines traditional views of the role of women and the nature of resistance. It is a spirited response to the brutalizing effects of war.
