It was not difficult to get on the wrong side of the
authorities in 1976 South Africa if you are black; in fact it is very
easy.  Isaac Mutherthe, a young medical student, witnessed the murder of
his friend by authorities, now his life is in jeopardy and he must flee into
neighboring Botswana leaving his family behind.  Isaac meets two special
beings in Botswana; white dog and Alice Mendelssohn. Without papers or
prospects his options are few.   Isaac is fortunate to find work as a
gardener.  Alice sees that Isaac is a bright young man; she intuits that
he is in some kind of trouble; and forges a friendship with her young
gardener.  When he goes missing Alice refuses to believe that Isaac
abandoned his job, she searches for him learning truths about herself and
Africa that will change her life.  Luminous writing, a poignant story, and
moments of grace make this a sure bet to be one of my favorites in 2013.
