It’s one thing to be a lefty, Afrikaner or any other kind, in the city, but to do so in a conservative farming community takes a special kind of courage, intelligence, bloody-mindedness and integrity.
Be prepared to laugh and to weep when you read this novel, a work of considerable beauty and power. It’s the story of the Bothas of Rietpan and Wolwefontein, who according to Pa were “pure Griquas”, and it covers the childhood of Dominique and her brother, Paul, veering into their early adult years in the 1970s and 1980s.
