Pocket Rainbow by Karen Ess – stories of hope from Johannesburg’s oldest township
More about the book!
Pocket Rainbow describes the life of orphans and vulnerable children in the township of Alexandra, Johannesburg.
Nothemba is a young girl kicked out of home due to poverty and has to find her own way. Gladys is a young girl who experiences something traumatic after the birth of her child; and Themba is an orphan who solves a mystery along with his friend Elizabeth.
Poignant, poetically descriptive, this book helps you enter the world of Alex, and understand their life, challenges, lives, hopes, dreams and ingenuity. A real testament to the people who endure much.
