Get Book 1 and Book 2 of "The Vase with the Many Colored Marbles" to keep you warm over the winter months. "The Vase with the Many Colored Marbles" spans the western setting of South Africa... From the cities through to the outback... From the author of "Brakenstroom" and "The Master of the House" comes "The Vase with the Many Colored Marbles." A romantic novel set in the midst of a country broken in two. Can love conquer the racism of a South Africa in the middle of Apartheid? Book 1: Emma Emily Kleintjies, born in district six of the Cape Province, could not live her life classified and treated as a second class person in a country she loved dearly. Fortunate enough to be born with blue eyes and straight hair she escapes Cape Province and travels to Johannesburg where she changes her name and becomes Emma Kline. When she falls in love with a man called Eric O'Neil and the two of them have a baby, She knows she can never accept his proposal of marriage. She has no papers to prove she is white and would find herself exposed- her new life in tatters. When on holiday in England she meets a man called Bertie who knows nothing about racial barriers. The two of them fall in love in a country that has no apartheid, no racial barriers.. But will secrets from her past catch up and destroy her new life? Will she ever find true happiness with Bertie? Book 2: Marla Marla, the daughter of Emma Kline, lives the life of a European in the town of Potchefstroom and is encouraged by her mother to make as many friends among the Afrikaans community as she can. Her mother believes the only way to overcome apartheid is from within, not direct confrontation. Marla is an idealistic student and her story revolves around the fight to free South Africa from the Hendrik Verwoerd apartheid system. Will she ever find out that her mothers family are colored and that she is fighting to free her own mother from her past?
