Arrived in today's mail. Thank you - especially for the beautiful card. As bookrings / rays are wont to do, this is the third to arrive in the space of a week (all African, I think), after a very long dry spell. I will do my best to keep to my allotted timeframe, but please be patient with me as my reading time is limited at the moment. I will definitely not stall the book.

This was a struggle as it's not a topic that grabs my attention, but I did enjoy the writing style. I can't help but think the girl's destiny was determined before she was born.

On to Martjxox in tomorrow's mail.
