The Other Side of the Invisible Fence Book
The Other Side Of The Invisible Fence tells the story of two boys living on a farm during the apartheid years in South Africa. One of the boys is an African and son of the farm’s foreman. The other boy is the son of the white owner of the farm. Although these boys are best friends they are separated by an invisible fence created by the apartheid laws in South Africa.
This is the story about how, against all odds, the boys put a gate in the invisible fence. The book paints a beautiful, yet shockingly vivid portrait of South Africa as it moved from the apartheid years to the present.
The Other Side of the Invisible Fence is about suffering. About hope. About change. A story that will help both children and adults understand the true meaning of the word compassion.
