The happiest day of her Mums life was when she first held her first child. Unfortenty her first born dies before he turns 2. In 1968 many babies did not make it. there was not enough medicens and such for the new born babies. the family moves alot. now they have relocated to Karoi, a city in Rhodesia meaning "Little Witch".

Before this book I had not heard of the Rhodesian Bush War. It is intersting to hear about it from a girl who grew up in this life style. the war in Iraq doesn't affect my daily life. Yes i think its bad. and I feel bad for all of the familys involved. but I dont worry about people shooting me if i leave my house. like Alexandrea felt growing up. I think people really dont know the fear people go through when their country is in a war.
