About Unbroken Wing
Cape Town 1989: It’s a tumultous time, a season of change, and confusion, of walls tumbling and doors swinging open and the people of South Africa taking to the streets with the scent of freedom in the air.
But Ruth Woolley has other things on her mind. Her boyfriend Jack is in prison on a terrorism charge and, as if that is not enough, she discovers that she’s pregnant with his child…
Unbroken Wing captures the heady mix of excitement and uncertainty of South Africa in the final days of the struggle. Within this, is the story of one woman’s search for her identity amid the clamour and crush of history.
