Tears in My Hands

Indwe - - Books - By Stan Montsho

Sech­aba’s jour­ney is one of trial and tribu­la­tions. De­ter­mined to be­come the man his fam­ily never had, he be­comes a true con­fir­ma­tion of the bi­b­li­cal verse that, “If you walk through the val­ley of the shadow of death, you will fear no evil, for you are with God; His rod and staff will com­fort you.” He walks day and night into the un­known with only hope tucked tight in the pock­ets of his tat­tered trousers. Tears in my Hands is a hyp­notic, grip­ping and rous­ing nar­ra­tive that many South Africans – par­tic­u­larly those liv­ing in ru­ral ar­eas – can iden­tify with. It is a story of loss, courage, sur­vival, for­bid­den love, and per­se­ver­ance in the face of poverty and a ruth­less sys­tem.
