The Chameleon’s Tale by Andrea Bramhall

This is an amazing book that captures your attention and doesn’t let go to the final chapter. A story if two strong women fighting for justice, rekindling an old friendship and finding true love all the while uncovering one of the biggest scandals in South African history.
Imogene Frost is a barrister in London. She grew up in South Africa, but after her mother was brutally murdered she was sent to boarding school by her wealthy land-owning father. Bitterness and contempt have filled her heart and she swore to never return to her birthplace, but the death of her father forces her hand.

Amahle, the daughter of Mr. Frost’s maid, was Imogene’s dearest childhood friend. These two were inseparable until Imogene was forced to move. Amahle has grown up to be a successful politician, fighting for the injustices of the South African people. Her causes include women’s right and public HIV treatment, she has made life’s mission to be a champion for those who have been horribly suppressed.

At times this story can be gut wrenching, chaotic and gritty. The stories of rape and torture are harrowing, my stomach turned on more than one occasion. What Bramhall does is throw you headfirst into the story. You feel the character’s pain as much as their triumphs. This captures your attention and blazes right through chapter after chapter. Fair warning you will not and cannot put this book down. Good news is there is a happy ending and hopefully many more adventures for Amahle and Imogene.
