Makareta is the chosen one - carrying her families hopes. Missy is the observer - the one who accepts but has her dreams. Mata is always waiting - for life to happen as it stealthily passes by. These three women are the cousins of one of Patricia Grace's most popular novels. Moving from the forties to the present, from the country to the protests of the cities, Cousins is the story of three girls once thrown together and as women grown apart.
