Summary
"Persomi is young, white and poor, born the middle child of sharecroppers on the prosperous Fourie farm in the South African Bushveld. A close relationship with older brother Gerbrand and fragile friendship with Boelie Fourie, heir to the farm, are Persomi's lifeline. Then Gerbrand leaves to fight on the side of the Anglos in WWII and Boelie joins an underground network of Boer nationalists. As her small world falls apart, bigger dreams beckon - of an education,a profession, a country that values justice and equality, and of love."--
