Sixteen-year-old outsider Willem, an only child living in working-class Johannesburg, is sent to New Dawn training camp where his parents hope he will keep out of trouble and become a safari ranger. Vulnerable and cut off from his family, Willem soon finds himself at the mercy of a General with dangerous ideas. A hundred years earlier, at the height of the second Boer War, Sarah van der Watt and her son Fred are taken from their farm by force to an English-run Concentration Camp. Based on true stories, these lives masterfully come together to reveal shocking hidden histories, contemporary secrets and, ultimately, the power of love.
