About the book: 

Henry Wegland, a former ANC activist now living in New York City with his son, encourages Saul, his grandson, to travel to South Africa to make a documentary about the people involved in the country’s liberation.

Saul begins to unravel the dark secrets of his grandfather’s past and the shocking events that led to his exile, when he is kidnapped in a rural township. Henry, now in his twilight years, must come to a new understanding of his son and make peace with the choices he once made for them both.

Spanning past and present, South Africa and New York, the interlocking narratives of A Quiet Kind of Courage are a spellbinding portrayal of exile, the meaning of home, and how one man’s attempt to liberate his country changed the lives of his family for generations.
