This African tale has a gutsy & lying heroine, Georgina, who got knocked up by her peer childhood friend. He thought she was good enough for a mistress, a Reverend's daughter, but not good enough for his wife. She flees to her brother in Africa & tells no one about her condition. She arrives with a baby & a story of her dead hubby, Captain Granville, but discovers her brother is dead. She now lives with her son James, Sara & her precocious daughter, Juliette, who are more like servants than slaves.
Anton Villion may look & dress as a beggar, but he really is very wealthy. He travels thru Arifca with his trusted friend, Kop, & is a trader, hunter & transports goods. Anton's best friend is James, Georgina's brother, & he always stops by James' plantation, Leeuwfontein, during his treks home to Cape Town. On his last trip, he find a lost survive of a Dutch Company, a small untalkative Dirk, that he plans to reunite with family. Anton shows up at James, is so NOT welcomed by James' uppity & gorgeous sister, told of James' death & is almost denied to stay the night, but he gives Georgina no choice & camps out back.
Georgina & Anton are like oil & water, but shivers are riding thru Georgina body when she looks at him. Anton leaves Dirk because he becomes ill with a high fever & Georgina gets irate at him. He is so pissed off by her rudeness, that his parting words are that James didn't own this plantation anymore, he does. While he is in Cape Town, his well meaning sister tries to get him to marry. Georgina is back on the land trying to make it work & profitable, so maybe Anton will let her stay. Anton writes her that she has 6 months before she needs to leave.Read more ›
