Join us to discuss The Woman Next Door by Yewande Omotoso.
Hortensia James and Marion Agostino are neighbors in Cape Town, South Africa. One is black, the other white. Bother are successful women and both have been recently widowed. Sworn enemies, the two share a hedge and a deliberate hostility. But, one day, an unexpected event forces Hortensia and Marion together. As the physical barriers between them collapse, their bickering gradually softens into conversation and, gradually, the two discover common ground. But are these sparks of connection enough to ignite a friendship, or is it too late to expect these women to change?
