Boniface and Me

By Gillian Plowman

A recently divorced woman begins to write to an African child she met on a trip to Zimbabwe. Soon, she is corresponding with several children and their grateful headmaster.

In a series of beautifully observed and accurately captured letters, she finds more love, support and wisdom from their friendship than she does from her own materialistic and egregious offspring.
