From the Publisher
It is 1846: the ship was bound for Australia. Aboard were Josh Retallick and Miriam Thackeray, prisoners destined for the convict settlements...until the random hand of fate wrecked their vessel on the Skeleton Coast of South West Africa (Namibia).
Far from the brooding Bodmin Moor, Josh and Miriam are strangers in a strange and hostile land, an alien world of Bushmen and Hereros, of foraging Boers and greedy traders, of ivory tusks and smuggled guns. Josh, Miriam and their son, Daniel, live in times of turbulence until Josh is pardoned.
E.V. Thompson's bestselling historical novels sweep magnificently from 19th Century Cornwall to the Africa of the Boer War. They bring the past powerfully to life, offering readers unforgettable evocations of the lives and loves of past generations.
