Item Description...
Monica Brunetti, a South African journalist, finds her life forever changed when a brush with evil lands her in the hospital with Ella Nkhoma, an extraordinary woman who challenges her views and leads her on powerful journey of friendship. Reprint.

Community Description
The surviving child had survived again . . . Why had I been spared now, when the last two carjack victims in this hospital had not? When my own brother had not? . . . I hesitated even to put shape to the idea forming in my head. Was there a divine purpose that required my life be spared?

South African journalist Monica Brunetti had it all -- promising career, loving family, marriage-minded boyfriend. Then, a life-changing encounter with evil landed her in a hospital bed next to a gregarious, charismatic Ella Nkhoma, whose wit and caring challenged Monica's worldview. Their remarkable friendship would lead Monica far from the gated white suburbs, and toward a parting that left both women transformed . . . and Monica the mother of two sons.

Set against the dynamic patchwork of South Africa, The Road to Home is an inspriing story of love, courage and everyday miracles.

Vanessa Del Fabbro, born and raised in South Africa, worked as a print and radio journalist before writing The Road to Home, her first novel. She lives in Houston with her husband and young daughter.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A realistic portrait of modern South Africa  Sep 10, 2006
To be completely honest, I wasn't looking forward to reading "inspirational fiction," but I was COMPLETELY SURPRISED to find myself caught up in this story (and now halfway through the sequel). Sure, it reads a little like a Hallmark movie, but one that is set amid violence and an AIDS epidemic that South Africa's leadership has been extremely slow to address.

I had the great fortune to have the author present at a recent book club discussion of her work. Hearing her first-hand accounts of the violence and politics only made me more appreciative of the book. If you are interested in the country, or are drawn in the least to the images that Oprah and others deliver to Americans in neat, tidy packages, you will enjoy The Road to Home.
Powerful and poignant Read  Aug 28, 2006
Powerful and poignant, for every South African that is courageous enough to have their eyes opened post-apartheid. Through Monica, we experience a journey that is all too familiar, wrestling with the wrongs of the past and feeling inspired for the future of this beautiful country.
For every non-South African - a true insight into a kaleidoscopic country. I laughed, I cringed, I cried - utterly brilliant. Sequel please?
Lovely, gentle story  Jun 11, 2006
This is a lovely book with a story that builds to a very powerful end. It moves so subtly you almost don't realize how caught up you are until you are there.

Two women become friends, despite all the barriers that exist between white and black people in post-Apartheid South Africa. Both women find themselves in situations that force them to evaluate what's important in their lives. In the process, they become important to each other.

I really loved this book. Twice it brought me to tears. The writing is lovely, and the message is both hopeful and kind.
Inspiring and thought-provoking  Dec 29, 2005
This novel had powerful characters that both inspired and moved one to question some of the deeper questions, including the meaning of one's life. The setting, post-apartheid South Africa, is a character itself and provides the background for some meaningful events to take place. It's nice to read something so different than many novels set in average America. The plot held my attention and the characters held my heart. I highly recommend this novel and look forward to her future works.
Couldn't put it down  Jul 8, 2005
Post apartheid South Africa and AIDS are difficult topics to cover. The author descibes a situation facing millions daily, describing both the good and the bad without ever passing judgement or searching for a romantic ending. We are instead lead on a thought-provoking journey with the main characters. A great read, can't wait for the sequel.
