Heavens May Fall by Unity Dow
Book DescriptionUnity Dow's fourth novel tells the story of Naledi Chaba, a young attorney who has to battle prejudices within the legal profession and in the broader society. Her clients are mainly women and children, and she finds that under traditional law and modern Botswana law they are without protection. This novel follows Naledi and her best friend and cousin Dr Mmdi More as they struggle against the frustrations of a society in transition. How can an unmarried, childless professional be expected to triumph -- even occasionally -- in a world caught between tradition and cosmopolitanism.

Author Biography - Unity Dow
Unity Dow is the first woman in Botswana to be appointed High Court judge. Dow has a long record as a human rights attorney, co-founding the Women and Law in Southern Africa Research Project and is a member of International Women's Rights Watch an advocacy organisation. In 1995 Dow challenged the government over the 1982 Citizenship Act, under which Botswana women married to foreigners could not pass on their nationality to their children, though Botswana men married to foreigners could. This led to passage of a legislation that gave women the right to pass on their nationality to their children.
