I think the setting of this story could be pretty much any place that experiences revolution.

The story shows the feelings of those involved, but I think simplistically.

I actually found it kind of boring, since I prefer more extensive depiction like that in Game of Thrones, or the early books of the Dune series.

Dovey, a white South African woman, convincingly writes in the voices of 3 African men, all connected by a revolutionary coup as they relate their intertwined stories. Sometimes allies, sometimes, bitter enemies, the blended narratives reveal a network of relationships and betrayals. A fascinating novel deserving of a wider audience.
