’n Oomblik in die windCk to the Cape and her home Adam agrees because he believes by rescuing Elizabeth he will be awarded his own freedom This then is the stunning story of their trek together how they find in each other their mutual need and humanity and finally how their days together turn into an unforgettable tender love story Shortlisted for the Booker Prize. At times a little drawn out with the details and descriptions of the setting I also felt like the ending was not as clear nor poignant as it could have been An Instant in the Wind is a tale about star crossed lovers trying to survive the South African wilderness despite their fate having already been decided by societal conditions and opinions It says a lot about one's hope for positive change and acceptance as well as shedding preconceived notions developed by your surroundings rather than those developed yourself Ultimately a sad but honest story which I would recommend to another reader
