Melanie Verwoerd is one of the most fascinating public figures in Ireland. Ever since Nelson Mandela encouraged her to use her voice to bring about change, she has done precisely that, becoming one of the few white members of the ANC and one of the youngest MPs in the new South African Parliament. In "When We Dance", Melanie writes of her upbringing in apartheid-era South Africa, her political conversion and her groundbreaking work as South African Ambassador and CEO of UNICEF Ireland. For the first time, she also writes about her relationship with the late, much-missed broadcaster Gerry Ryan, including the difficult days and weeks leading up to his untimely death. She writes tenderly and passionately about her relationship with the man who has been the great love of her life. "When We Dance" is both the tale of a life well-lived and a moving love story. It will bring a tear to your eye and joy to your heart.
