A captivating story. The most endearing characters. And an exotic far away land. All deftly drawn together by the delicate hand of author, Jill Wallace.
~Goodreads Review

Two boys, one Zulu, one white, united in friendship in spite of Apartheid, are eventually torn asunder by South African society. They meet years later on opposite sides of a bloody bush war. Can only one survive?

“Zebra is an intriguing and heartwarming story that expertly portrays with explicit detail, atmosphere and time references that captivate. Like all great artists she sets the mood, time and place so that the reader has the feeling of being there. A wonderful book that you won’t want to put down!”  GoodReads Reader.

“No politics here, just an incredible story of friendship told with gorgeous attention to detail. A page turner, and one that left me shaken and impressed. Outstanding writing, story, and characters. Add this to your Must-Read list. You won’t be sorry.” Amazon Reader

From the first word, I was captivated! Jil Wallace pens a vivid look into a slice of World War II not often seen. Vibrant language, evocative images and heartfelt emotions bring a story you can’t put down!

“A Love Story for The Ages” Roxanne St. Claire, NY Times Bestselling Author.

“It’s not often that you find a book with such an epic story that takes you away to a faraway land and allows you to connect to the characters so vividly…” GoodReads reader.
