SUMMARY ↠ The White Shadow READ & DOWNLOAD The White Shadow Ce that there is something special about her Their life in the village once disturbed only by the occasional visits of his successful uncle and city cousin Abel now becomes entangled with the dual forces of the Shona spirit world and the political turmoil of the nationAs Tinashe Hazvinei and Abel grow older their destinies entangle in. I suppose the best way to describe the genre of this novel is a Bildungsroman set in the time of Zimbabwe s Second Chimurenga forty years ago Was it as long ago as that And the author wasn t even born then Tinashe is a young Shona boy who grows up in a rural village ocasionally visited by his rich uncle from the city and his cousin He dreams of going to school and university like his uncle but his cousin doesn t seem to value these things Tinashe s younger sister Hazvinei is strange and communes with spirits Her brother and other people sometimes find her rather frightening but he feels obliged to care for her even when it threatens to disrupt his education In some ways it is like an African version of David Copperfield or The catcher in the rye but it is also bound up with the surreal and unpredictabe world of Shona mythology where the spirits can make people feel invincible at one moment and dash all their hopes the next
