Each page of Reflections of the heart, a story of hope’ will leave you wondering what will happen next. The opening scene is in a hospital setting and this immediately lets the reader know that something has happened. You are immediately hooked and must continue reading in order to discover what led to the state of affairs presented. This intense and gripping book centres on the somewhat cushioned life of an African girl, Kui, who grows up in pre and post-independent Zimbabwe. She was born in the early 70’s during the liberation struggle, although she was oblivious to that because she was young and her parents lived in the city. The exciting thing about the story is that the reader goes on a journey with Kui from the beginning.The first few chapters are a detailed narrative, laying a foundation for the story by describing Kui’s background and upbringing. This entails giving an account of her years in primary school, her family life and her friendships. Of note is the particular focus on her high school years which are spent at a top notch boarding school. At some stage there is an introduction to Kui’s love life, which adds a romantic twist to the novel. This is all important in understanding who Kui is and setting the context of the novel.The story evolves and becomes progressively conversational. It highlights Kui’s experiences as the years progress culminating to the events that led to her life reaching rock bottom. Somehow through it all God enters the picture, but will Kui take this life line? A significant portion of the book focuses on the soul-searching and turmoil within Kui’s heart, which she keeps to herself. However the reader is able to have insight of Kui’s mind and feelings through her thoughts and diary entries. As a result there is a glimpse into how the mind of a teenager works.Several interesting and enjoyable characters are introduced as the story evolves and this enriches the story.
