Raised the daughter of a black maid in a privileged white household, Ruth Jefferson is no stranger to prejudice – though as a respected senior nurse, she feels a world away from the inequality that defined her mothers life.

Kennedy McQuarrie is a lawyer who defends those who would otherwise be helpless, and would not consider herself a racist by any means.

When a white supremacist accuses Ruth of a crime that leads to the death of his new-born baby, and costs Ruth her job, Kennedy knows it is the kind of case she became a lawyer to win.

As the trial unfolds and the efforts to establish the truth about what happened in the hospital continue, all three – accused, accuser and defender – will be forced to confront much bigger truths: the truths they tell themselves about the world they live in, the values upon which theyve raised their families and the beliefs around which theyve lived their lives.

Never afraid to confront the moral dilemma of our times in the most human terms, SMALL GREAT THINGS is Jodi Picoult at her thought-provoking, life-affirming best.

Dié nuwe kragtoer deur een van die gewildste Afrikaanse skrywers van historiese fi ksie speel af teen die Tweede Wêreldoorlog met al sy hebsug en barbaarsheid. Mentje de Vries, ’n Nederlandse oorlogswesie, is tien jaar oud toe sy saam met Joodse vlugtelinge in ’n geheime kamp in die woud beland en daar skuil. Toe dit begin blyk dat die Duitsers die kamp enige dag gaan ontdek, vlug sy na haar familie in Arnhem, maar ook daar is sy nie welkom nie en moet sy veg om te oorleef tydens die Slag van Arnhem en die Honger Winter van 1944. In dieselfde tyd sluit Tinus van Jaarsveld in Suid-Afrika by die Britse Leër aan as valskermsoldaat – nie weens oordrewe lojaliteit aan die Britse Ryk nie, maar vir die vergoeding, want hy wil die familieplaas met alle mag en geweld terugkoop. Toe hy by Arnhem gewond word, red Mentje hom ondanks die gevaar wat dit vir haar inhou. Hy laat haar ná die oorlog na Suid-Afrika kom, waar sy moet aanpas en inpas by drie geslagte van die verskeurde Van Jaarsvelds. Só betree sy en Thinus saam ’n lewensreis vol verlies en versoening, mensliewendheid en vergifnis.

How to tell a shattered story By slowly becoming everybody. No. By slowly becoming everything.

In a city graveyard, a resident unrolls a threadbare Persian carpet between two graves.
On a concrete sidewalk, a baby appears quite suddenly, a little after midnight, in a crib of litter.
In a snowy valley, a father writes to his five-year-old daughter about the number of people that attended her funeral.
And in the Jannat Guest House, two people who’ve known each other all their lives sleep with their arms wrapped around one another as though they have only just met.

Here is a cast of unforgettable characters caught up in the tide of history. Told with a whisper, with a shout, with tears and with laughter, it is a love story and a provocation. Its heroes, present and departed, human and animal, have been broken by the world we live in and then mended by love – and for this reason, they will never surrender.
