About the book:

When Rachel’s brother disappears under mysterious circumstances, she must come to terms with his apparent death, though there is no body. She travels to Joburg to support her sisterinlaw, Maya, with the memorial – also to escape her stifling life as a wife and mother. Rachel is unsettled when Max, her exlover, arrives. Despite poet Sizwe’s efforts to steady her, Rachel reels from grief and longing. Then Rachel, Maya, Max and Sizwe are involved in a confrontation that will change them forever. All That is Left is a story of loss, love and betrayal, of acceptance and letting go. It captures internal conflicts in South Africa, the personal and political pains of both the past and the imagined future.
