Mountain of Lost Dreams
Set in the farming community of the Kammanassie mountains in the Eastern Cape, Annelie Botes's family saga takes us into the world of the Verryne family - Daniel the father, and Schoonraad the son. Both men are passionate about their land and about preserving the beauty of the wildlife and fynbos around them, but they are both headstrong individuals who share an uncompromising obstinacy. A single incident which neither of them can confront drives them apart, creating a rift which seems impossible to bridge ...Botes's evocative style, with its touches of magical realism, and her ability to bring her characters vividly to life, makes Mountain of Lost Dreams a thoroughly entertaining read.
