Vicky was named to celebrate Nelson Mandela’s victorious walk to freedom at the dawn of a new South Africa. Her mother worked happily as Lionel’s maid for seventeen years. Vicky played at Lionel’s house as a child as if it was her own home and it was Lionel who encouraged her educational aspirations. So when Lionel – widowed and alone – catches two burglars ransacking his house and finds that one of them is Vicky, it is more than his possessions which are destroyed.
