WILMINGTON, NC, September 22, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/
-- While many books have been written about apartheid in South Africa, seldom do readers have the opportunity to read a book written by someone who lived in South Africa and experienced firsthand the horrors of apartheid as a child. In addition her book is a riveting love story, the kind of tale from which great movies have been made. Kass Ghayouri's award winning book, 'An Era Of Error' gives readers a glimpse from the inner side of those historical events. The book has been compared to 'Cry, The Beloved Country' by Alan Paton.
Set during the Apartheid era in South Africa, the book is centered on Ghayouri's childhood experiences there during that time. Ghayouri deftly paints a stunning panoramic portrait of the obstacle her characters faced, living in South Africa during the Apartheid era. The reader will experience the brutality of apartheid, as seen through the eyes of a child.
Ghayouri hopes that her book will help bring awareness to the issues surrounding apartheid. She has sent copies of the book to Oprah Winfrey's school in South Africa. Her mother appeared in Winfrey's magazine, 'O', as one of the players on the cricket team formed to empower disadvantaged women and girls. Her mother also met with Nelson Mandela upon his release from prison.
Ghayouri was the first place winner in the '2015 50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading Awards'. In addition, Readers Favorite awarded the book 5 stars. The book has received rave reviews from reviewers and readers alike. A review by Reader's Favorite called the historical fiction novel " . . . a tale that will undoubtedly remind readers of 'Cry, The Beloved Country' by Alan Paton and 'A Dry White Season' by Andre Brink; . . ."
"The movie 'The Promise' is a heart-rending love story that unfolds during the Armenian genocide," Ghayouri stated. "Likewise, 'An Era of Error' features unrequited love, imbedded amidst the brutality of the Apartheid era. During this turbulent era, the most beautiful love story transports the star crossed lovers into a new dimension. It will bring movie goers to tears".
