Temba Magorimbo about this book: Singing helps soothe the heart of the soul within man or woman. They are all singers, not professional performance artists who can smile while hiding a broken heart, NO. They are just a group of young, middle aged and slightly older who have the joy and passion for music. That is their forte. They all belong to the same group of praise singers. They are running with the crowd that makes holy noise. This is a group of young and unmarried people with a few exceptions who all congregate without belonging to any particular church. The story shows how these young people react to the economic and social conditions surrounding them as the economy is a mainstay to one and bad for another. They like to worship. How do challenges take them across the country? Who will fall from grace or who will stay strong?
