A sad love story, indeed, during a turbulent period at the end of the Anglo-Boer War




This book is based on the letters of a young Englishman to his bride – and her diary notes – which record in poignant detail the events leading up to the tragic death of Frank Eland in a skirmish with a Boer patrol. Sarah Heckford, the intrepid lady trader, Queen Modjadji, a German missionary, ‘Breaker’ Morant of the Bushveldt Carbineers, Chief Makgoba and Charles Dickens all feature in this historic narrative.
