BARE: THE BLESSERS GAME

DRUM - - Chill Out - – THULANI GQIRANA

BY JACKIE PHAMOTSE (SELF-PUB­LISHED) When a naive young girl leaves her small town and her dys­func­tional fam­ily home in We­stonaria and heads to the City of Gold, she ex­pects the world to wel­come her with open arms.

She walks straight into the greedy heart of Joburg in search of fame and a happy end­ing.

But Trea­sure trusts too eas­ily and ends up be­ing se­duced by a wealthy man who turns her into a pow­er­hun­gry woman.

This book ex­plores whether a life of lux­ury and plea­sure is re­ally worth the pain and end­less sac­ri­fices made by South African women. The au­thor shows the other side of the blessee/ blesser re­la­tion­ship, the emo­tional trauma and the ul­ti­mate ef­fect the life­style can have on young women.

Liv­ing a #blessed life comes with a hefty price tag, and the book is a clear indi­cator of just how dam­ag­ing that life can be.
