9781868426393: The Runaway Horses

A sweeping family saga of love, loyalty and betrayal in the time of the Boer war. Two sets of cousins, Boer and Brit, find their destinies inexorably intertwined in the politics and mayhem that led up to and encompassed the Anglo Boer War of 1899 - 1902. From Transvaal to Victorian England, the cousins form strong bonds that are tested on the battlefields of South Africa. Martin de Winter, nurtured to lead his country, Transvaal, into the twentieth century, instead finds himself excelling as a gifted young general, fighting a desperate war to keep his nation from ruin, all the while being haunted by his love for a British woman. James Henderson, cavalry officer, is forced by his father, a military aristocrat, to marry or face expulsion from his regiment. Bound for India, the regiment is diverted to South Africa to fight the Boers. James rides to glory and honour but is at the mercy of his loyalty to his country and his compassion for his Boer family. In the drawing rooms of Cape Town and Pretoria, Stefanie de Winter, celebrated pianist, is viewed from both sides with suspicion. Fiercely loyal to her brother Martin, but in love with a British officer, she embarks on a dangerous path to keep them both. Doctor Charles Henderson tends to the slaughter on the battlefields. He is devastated by the wilful destruction of his adopted country, Transvaal, and anguished by the part his brother, James, plays in this. Karel and Rudolf de Winter, twin brothers devoted to each other and their horses to the exclusion of all else, fight a battle against the bullet that might separate them forever. Through anger, injustice, and betrayal, the family discovers that there is a force stronger than war.

About the Author:

Joyce Kotze was nurtured on tales of individuals in times of war, her forefathers having fought in the major conflicts of the twentieth century, her grandfathers as young men on opposite sides in the Boer War. She grew up in Namibia, studied in Cape Town, and worked as a radiographer on the conflict-torn borders of Southern Africa. She is an avid reader of good literature, poetry, and history and lives in a small village north of Cape Town with her husband and dogs. She is now working on a story set in WWI about South Africans in Delville Wood.
