When you are accustomed to the finer things in life – designer shoes, champagne, VIP lounges, exotic holidays abroad, a luxury penthouse, expensive wheels – what independent young woman in her right mind would want to let them go Certainly not the beautiful, ambitious and super-streetsmart Bontle Tau, the girl who has used her good looks and winning charm all her life to get exactly what she wants. The lifestyle doesnt come cheap, though, nor does maintaining the body that allows it (just ask Dr Heinz at the beauty clinic). Luckily, Bontle has a degree in MENcology, and there is no shortage of blessers at her penthouse door, eager to give her all the love and (financial) support she needs. Papa Jeff might be overweight and getting on a bit, and receiving some unwanted attention from the Hawks; and Teddy might not have fully come through for her on that messed-up tender business; but Mr Emmanuel, the Nigerian businessman with deep pockets and the possibility of conferring second wife status … could that be love Keeping all her boyfriends happy and living a fabulous life is not without its challenges. With so many people clamouring for Bontles attention – from her shebeen queen mother Gladys in Mamelodi, who is taking strain bringing up her teenaged brother, Golokile, on her own; to her girlfriends, Iris and Tsholo; not to mention her soon-to-be ex-husband, the ever-patient, ever-loving Ntokozo, Bontle barely has time to post on Instagram these days.

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.

Anita Shreve’s career catapulted when Oprah Winfrey recommended Shreve’s 1998 novel, The Pilot’s Wife, to her television book club. I have been a devotee ever since, which is why I was delighted that her latest offering, The Stars are Fire, didn’t disappoint. Set in the late 1940s against the backdrop of the monumentally destructive Maine fires, a young wife is disillusioned with her husband and marriage, and then fire intervenes. While Grace, the protagonist, is left alone with her children, her husband joins the volunteer firefighters, but she proves that adversity is the mother of invention and she is braver and stronger than she ever could have imagined. Shreve has skilfully juxtaposed the destruction of a state with the portrait of a bad marriage. The result is an evocative re-creation of post-war, pre-feminist American society. The Stars are Fire is the perfect weekend indulgence, and it’s the kind of book you won’t easily forget.
