Copied from Goodreads:

For years, it had been what is called a “deteriorating situation.” Now all over South Africa the cities are battlegrounds. The members of the Smales family—liberal whites—are rescued from the terror by their servant, July, who leads them to refuge in his village. What happens to the Smaleses and to July—the shifts in character and relationships—gives us an unforgettable look into the terrifying, tacit understandings and misunderstandings between blacks and whites.

Nadine Gordimer was a winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature

A paperback from Bloomsbury. Not sure where I got this, I think maybe a book swap event in my book club?

I read this book a few years ago, it was both moving and depressing. It's one of the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die. One understands why.
