Author(s): Ann Harries
The Boer War is razing South Africa to the ground. In the midst of these horrors are three women fighting for love, survival and justice: Sarah, an angelically beautiful nurse from England; Louise, her madcap friend; and the dynamic campaigner, Emily Hobhouse. As their dramas unfold, so too does the history of the war - the events that turned what was intended to be a quick annexation of the Boers into a protracted, savage conflict. In this compelling novel, with its unforgettable characters, Ann Harries brings South Africa's colonial past vividly alive.
