Donderslag | Fiction
When Sean Courtney, the hero of Witwatersrand, returns from a long hunting expedition, he encounters the violence of the Anglo-Boer War, his brother Garrick’s jealous hatred, a next generation of Courtneys and – above all – Ruth Friedman.
Ruth knocks him off his feet. She’s feisty, beautiful and . . . another man’s wife. What’s more, Sean becomes her husband’s bosom buddy and protector during the war!
Destiny takes Sean from hope to despair; from glory to devastation. Through every challenge his self-confidence, his strength and his iron will carries him.
With a few perfectly placed characters Wilbur Smith masterfully takes the reader into the thick of the Anglo-Boer War’s action, from famous battles to smaller fights. Against the background of this great struggle between nations, Sean faces a personal struggle for survival, to build a future for him and his loved ones and to find happiness with the woman he adores.
