A Quilt of Dreams : Grahamstown, South Africa. It is the 1990s, the height of political unrest. This is the bittersweet story of two people whose lives intertwine without them ever knowing each other - one a heavy drinking white man and the other the young daughter of a black activist. Reuben Cohen van Tonder's battle with unresolved grief and his search for hidden peace and Vita Mbuli's innocent resolve to remove the bad luck which has troubled her family for generations, climax together in a wondrous resolution of personal and national triumph. The harsh and brutal realities of South Africa's past with its raw and sore racism, are brilliantly interlaced with enchantment, tenderness, forgiveness and hope.
