du Toit's villain, the marine ecologist / witch Esther, manages to set a new story trap - this time not for Rebecca, but for the friends Rebecca made while wandering in a coma through a box of books. The trap is spun from a story Rebecca herself has written, a retelling of the African folktale "Hare and the Tar-Baby" (more familiar to North American readers, perhaps, as a Brer Rabbit story).
Characters from Rebecca's books are pulled into downtown Cape Town and must tough it out on the streets until Rebecca, her sisters Annmarie and Pippa, and Esther's sister Helen can figure out how to send them home.
They're hunted as soon as they arrive: by a zealous police reservist bent on sending the "illegal immigrants" back wherever they came from, and by Esther herself, who needs their life-essences to power her marine conservation research. But Hare, Miss Mouse, Hyena, Porcupine, and the huge and enigmatic Eland aren't entirely helpless - and their powers, when used in the strange and unfamiliar world of Cape Town, are complicating everything...
I eagerly read The Broken Path in a single sitting. It's neither a stretch nor premature to declare that du Toit's skillful artistry is steadily transforming Cape Town into a sister-city of Newford, nor to proclaim du Toit herself as the South African Charles de Lint.
