Nomsa is a thirty-year-old South African domestic worker; her employer is a caring person who lives in a fine house with a beautiful view of Table Mountain. Through no fault of her own, Nomsa contracts AIDS. This is her moving story, told in her own voice and the voice of her friends and family. It is also the story of AIDS and how it affects millions of sufferers in Africa, told with simplicity and sincerity. Suffering in Silence is a moving cry from the sufferers to the world; the powerful and personal resonances of this book speak to all who care about Africa.
