Die kind uit die wingerd | Fiction
Helene de Kock
Human & Rousseau
One Sunday afternoon in the fall of 1918, a three-year old comes walking through the Vredenhoek vineyard into the Erasmus family’s inner circle. Nobody recognises the child and the infant can’t say where he comes from. Those who know don't want to tell, and so it remains for the next twenty years. Laurens yearns to know his true identity – for how can you be someone if you don't know where you came from? Not even the neighbour's daughter, Carijn den Hagen, his confidante and best friend, can help him with his quest.
Then World War II changes everything. For some it is the end. For others, a doorway to their past.
