Reprint of a biography of Walter and Albertina Sisulu. Walter (1912-2003) served as Secretary-General and Deputy-President of the African National Congress.

"Lucid, moving, with strands of personal and political narratives coming together from Walter and Albertina's extraordinary lives: this wonderful book is a tribute to them, on addition to being a monument to the ANC." Nuruddin Farah, Somali novelist, author of " Gifts"

"Elinor Sisulu must be congratulated for relating this important story, enabling readers to experience the lives of Walter and Albertina and more particularly the integrity with which they acted on their choices." Mail & Guardian
