No Greater Love Kathi Macias. It wasn't until the early 1990s that the official racial divides began to be dismantled. Set in 1989, with apartheid as the backdrop of No Greater Love by award-winning author Kathi Macias, gives the reader a taste of the injustice and struggles suffered by Black and mixed-race people in South Africa, all with the approval of the South African government.

Sometimes I just want a good story. One that draws me in, keeps me turning pages, makes me forget my own crazy life for a few hours, and especially one that takes me far, far away . . . to a place I've never been, but care about.

Kathi Macias delivered all of the above in her just-released novel, No Greater Love. She also plucked one of my heartstrings in her story of the clash of cultures in South Africa and the fight to end apartheid. Ever since reading James Michener's The Covenant, I've been drawn to stories centered on that theme.

No Greater Love's cover promises a story of "forbidden romance" and an "unlikely martyr." For me, the setting in South Africa offered that plot on a silver platter. As soon as we meet Andrew, the son of the Afrikaner landowner, and Chioma, the coloured (sic) teenage housemaid, the die is cast. Knowing how hot and high tempers and tensions can run in these situations, I wasn't surprised by the way the story unfolded in the first half of the book. What I didn't see coming, however, was how the prejudices and evils surrounding the ideology of apartheid would be redeemed. Actually, I was rooting for a different ending, but Kathi gives us the only one that really makes sense--the one that works. And I wasn't disappointed.

I found myself completely caught up in the powerful scenes featuring Themba and his band of rebels. Lots of great conflict going on there--power struggles between good and evil, love and hate, survival and sacrifice. I also really appreciated the natural way Kathi included a strong faith message. Some Christian fiction feels like the gospel is just thrown in--but in this story, it is a part of the lives of the characters. As their trials increase, they grow in their faith. Redemption comes through revelation, just as it does for the reader.

I would especially recommend this book to home schooling families as an introduction to the genre of historical fiction and the subject of apartheid. It is certainly appropriate for middle-grade and YA readers. Although promoted as a romance, the romantic elements are tasteful, and in reality, the story goes much deeper than what one would expect in that genre.

No Greater Love
Kathi Macias

Apartheid isn't heard often any more. I believe we have an entire generation who doesn't know this sad part of world history--when South Africa officially sanctioned racial discrimination. It wasn't until the early 1990s that the official racial divides began to be dismantled.
Set in 1989, with apartheid as the backdrop of No Greater Love by award-winning author Kathi Macias, gives the reader a taste of the injustice and struggles suffered by Black and mixed-race people in South Africa, all with the approval of the South African government.
Chioma, orphaned at the age of twelve, has every reason to hate the white ruling class of South Africa. At sixteen, she comes face to face with a possibility that was as foreign to her as it was illegal. Chioma finds herself falling in love with the son of the owner of the farm where she works. Her hate for white people and her love for Andrew throw her into struggles of life and death, violence and revenge, or forgiveness and selfless love.
Unlike many Christian novels, No Greater Love offers no formula answers or formula endings. Each time I thought I knew the outcome of Chioma's life, I was surprised with something different and more compelling. This makes No Greater Love more than just a novel for pleasure reading; it is also a story that helps the reader examine whether such difficult decisions are possible in today's America.
In that regard, No Greater Love gives the reader a chance to determine how to react if Christians become the target of such bigotry. The questions becomes more than just will Chioma find happiness; it becomes "Can I survive the struggles she has faced?" "How would I react to those same horrid conditions?"
This is a book that should be in history classes as well. Apartheid is given scant treatment in many history courses and the reality of such injustice is lost in the facts. Students can learn more about the meaning of racial inequality through this story than any textbook can convey.
No Greater Love is the first in Ms. Macias' Extreme Devotion Series. The series will use romance, danger, and suspense to illustrate sacrificial love and victorious commitment. If this novel is a taste of the future books in the series, a winner has been born.

While reading NO GREATER LOVE I was drawn deeper and deeper into relationships with it's people. Even on the first page, my exciting journey began with sixteen year old Chioma and her beloved brother. Throughout the chapters I felt as if every person became a friend or foe. When they were happy or sad, fearful or brave, angry or kind, I too felt those emotions.
Author, Kathi Macias has shown me a part of the world I knew nothing about except through news reports in the media. As she wrote about South Africa in 1989 I visualized through her words: "a beautiful land marred by the ugliness of a system that enforced a cruel and unequal separation of the races."
It is easy to share my joys of becoming a part of this story, but I also felt fear and frustration. I eagerly turned the pages to see what the black rebels would do while they tried to fight for their rights each day.
God's love flows through to the end and I rejoice that I became a part of this awesome story.
Waste no time! Jump into an adventure that you will never forget. Then go and tell your neighbors about NO GREATER LOVE by Kathi Macias. They will be glad you did. (This is the first of four novels by Kathi in the Extreme Devotion Series from New Hope Publishers.)

Kathi Mathias portrays the deep hurts of apartheid from both the slave owner and the slaves perspective. The story also shows the difference the power of sacrificial love can make. The book emphasizes the love of God is for all--equally.

No Greater Love is a beautiful and yet unsettling story that exposes the injustice of apartheid as it played out in the lives of two families in South Africa. There were no tidy sweet endings to this book--at least not earthly ones. But there was truth as the unlikely martyr stood strong. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
