Based on the life of Sarah Hornblow, this novel has been wrapped around the historical fact. She was one of 4000 hardy souls who went to South Africa in 1820 to escape the trials of life in England during the Industrial Revolution. She survived the birth of eleven children, married four husbands, and found happiness and great tragedy. Beautiful in rainy seasons Albany region of the Eastern Cape of South Africa was heart-rendingly difficult in the three year drought that followed their arrival. The British of 1820 were unaware of the perils they faced when they arrived at Algoa Bay. Their struggle to form a colony was an epic one and today the heritage left by those 1820 pioneers goes deep in South Africa. They handed down a tradition of learning, a special brand of pluck and endurance, an unshakeable faith, and a sense of justice. This is a first novel written by her three times great granddaughter, who was born 100 years, to the day, after the death of this formidable woman.
