(From the publisher):
Set in nineteenth-century rural south Africa, Fiela's Child tells the gripping story of Fiela Kometie and a white, three-year-old child, Benjamin, whom she finds crying on her doorstep. For nine years Fiela raised Benjamin as one of her own children. But when census takers discover Benjamin, they send him to an illiterate white family of woodcutters who claim him as their son. What follows is Benjamin's search for his identity and the fundamental changes affecting the white and black families who claim him.
