This is an interesting telling of the early years in Southern Africa as depicted by the lives of the men and women who become the chief characters of this interesting historical novel. The characters who contribute to the variety in this story of the late nineteenth, early twentieth century are almost larger than life and the very expressive use of English by the author ensures that every nuance of description is used in the telling. The women are portrayed as being emotionally strong with an insight into the ways of men and of using those quirks to their advantage or to suit their purposes whilst the men are usually strong and robust.

Review in “BLACK POWDER” magazine (UK). By: Alan Overton.

Members may recall that this book was previewed by me in these pages in the autumn; my own copy has now arrived and far exceeds the very high expectations that I had formed of it.

I did not know what to expect when I opened this book, however I discovered a well written tale of South African life and why we are who we are, generally speaking.

Richard describes the South Africa he knew as a child growing up in the 1970's as:

“‘Before' South Africa is slow and heavy-lidded, greyish pale, tight-lipped and grim. ‘After' is vibrant, dangerously nimble, ever-shifting, and bright - bright with the colours of Africa inexorably moving south to claim this once negative space.”
