As If Born to You

Author: Susan Newham-Blake

Set in Johannesburg, South Africa, the novel focuses on two protagonists: Ana, a psychologist with a drinking problem, who is haunted by memories of a traumatic and neglectful childhood; and Zuri, a black teenager, adopted and raised by a white woman, Helen. Zuri has recently taken to cutting herself to relieve the tension and grief she feels about a secret. Ana is brought in as Zuri’s psychologist to help diagnose and heal the emotional pain causing the teenager’s self-destructive behaviour. As their relationship progresses, however, we learn that both are equally damaged by their pasts and the secrets they carry. For both, healing comes from unexpected sources.
