When reading the book called An Instant In The Wind by André Brink I started loving novels again. I really liked the book, because the story is beautiful and the plot interesting. In every way a succesful book choice.
South African writer André Brink wrote about love, which wasn’t accepted mid 1700s where the story is located. White woman and black man, slave, was an impossible combination and that’s why i think Elisabeth and Adam’s face in a desert outside of any civilization. These two are fighting across uninhabited regions of South Africa’s natural temperature completely at the mercy, and the trip progresses both weapons and the snobbish clothing are taking off. Ignoring each others past, life values and skin color, the finally find each other. I love it when the author takes the reader close to a different but lovely love story, while acces to an amazing and breathtaking journey through Africa.
The book is really worth reading if you love love stories and travelling.
