Set in the desolate landscape of the interior of the Cape in the late eighteenth century, Eyes of the Sky is a South African saga about identity, betrayal, forbidden love, and the coming together of diverse cultures vying for the scant resources of an arid land. The novel takes us into the hearts of the early people of the Cape - the settlers who had to be rough and tough to bend the wilderness to their will, and the brown-skinned people who found themselves "almost pushed off teh end of the earth".
