Click to enlarge

The warder sat down at a table and began to write in a big record book: Prisoner: Dikeledi Mokopi.  Charge: Murdering her husband.  Sentence: Life.

And so began another chapter in the life of Dikeledi Mokopi.  Her husband had abused her in every way possible, but one day he went too far--he tried to take away the most precious of Dikelediís treasures.  This story tells how her husband abandoned Dikeledi with three small children to care for and how she built up her life without him, only to have it shattered again by his return.  Bessie Head tells a moving tale with which many women will empathize.  Adapted by Chris van Wyk for advanced level readers.

Illustrated.  Includes a word list.  Also available in Setswana (600-0065).
