Burn My Heart, Paperback


The Mau Mau - the name of a secret society that once struck terror into the hearts of British settlers in Kenya.

An episode in history that ended in a State of Emergency, with violent and brutal acts dividing a nation.

This is an intensely personal and vivid story of two boys: one black, one white.

Once they were friends even though their circumstances are very different.

But in a country riven by fear and prejudice, even the best of friends can betray one another ...Internationally acclaimed and award-winning author Beverley Naidoo explores new territory in this beautifully realized and moving story set in Britain's colonial past.
