For Kari du Toit, Valentine’s Day will never be the same again. When the love of her life reveals he’s been unfaithful to her, life, romance, and everything in-between
come crashing down. Suddenly it seems as if her alternative, past life – one far removed from Bloubergstrand’s sandy beaches – is slowly catching up with her.
After ten years of silence, Kari receives a call from her estranged brother. Her beloved grandmother has passed away, and she is summoned to assist with the funeral proceedings. At the foot of Devil’s Peak, where neighbourly salaams and burkas are as ordinary
as yellow polka-dot bikinis, she once again becomes Karima Essop, daughter of Amina and Farouk Essop. Daughter, sister, deserted.
For Kari, sometimes finding love means going back to where you came from. Will her two identities ever learn to see eye to eye?
