I was excited to find this second hand on one of my first post-lockdown charity shop excursions.
This was so well written. Parts of Hirut's story are brutal, but it was such a good book, telling the story of Ethiopia's women soldiers in the war against Italian invasion during the 1930s. I didn't really know much about this part of history so that made it extra interesting. There are so many excellent African women writers around now.
And off it goes in a Christmas parcel. Merry Christmas and happy reading!

Thanks for the ace Christmas package Bookfrogster! I started this book earlier this year and didn't get very far though so I'll have to give it another go.
