A thriving black market—fueled by healers convinced of their supernatural medicinal properties—created an uncontrollable demand for the most grisly commodity to obtain—
the body parts of the colorless people.
After the murder and maiming of countless people afflicted with Albinism, the South African government realized that they had to intervene. Out of the desire to protect even the poorest of the afflicted people, the Humane Harvest Compounds were established.
Fifteen years later, in a rapidly changing post-Apartheid nation, Anytha and Tabitha—two young women living completely different lives—are found questioning the motives of those in power, setting their minds to look beyond their spotless reputations, good deeds, and popularity—unaware that what they discover may make them question what they believe about life itself.
Originally going into this book, I was worried that it would be very text-book like. But I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised right from the beginning. It was nothing like the impression I got while reading the first little bit of the book, about The Regulations of Humane Harvest Act. Going into this book I was a little apprehensive of it considering the premise of this book, but as I read more I grew to realize it was very similar to previous books I had read and loved.
