Larry Bowlden reviews South African author, Sheila Kohler's "Love Child". "Try to imagine yourself at 17 madly in love with a boy not much older than you, but knowing that because he is Jewish, and you the daughter of a not wealthy but nevertheless haughty authoritarian father, you'll never be able to openly date or marry your boy. The time is 1925, the place South Africa, and the young woman with the rather odd name of Bill is poised to grasp her freedom and elope. This is setting for Sheila Kohler's lovely but sad novel, Love Child."
