This novel is certainly the most outstanding example of P.G. de Plessis’s storytelling.
Through each of the unforgettable Van Wyks and their subfarmers the Minters, he brings a private, personal tragedy into the broader misery of the war, and in this way the war material becomes an entanglement of extremely intense human dramas, unforgettable descriptions of futile love, shattered dreams and the destruction of humanity.
