“Persomi’s close relationship with her older brother Gerbrand and her fragile friendship with Boelie Fourie — heir to the Fourie farm and fortune — are her lifeline and her only connection to the outside world. When Gerbrand leaves the farm to fight on the side of the Anglos in WWII and Boelie joins an underground network of Boer nationalists, Persomi’s isolated world is blown wide open. But as her very small world falls apart, bigger dreams become open to her — dreams of an education, a profession, a native country that values justice and quality, and of love.”

This book hops out of here regularly, so come and check it out as soon as you can! Not convinced? Last year another book of his, The Devil Walks in Mattingly, was the most borrowed book of 2015!
