Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A searing indictment of the rigid Boer social conventions of the 19th century, the first great South African novel chronicles the adventures of 3 childhood friends who defy societal repression. The novel's unorthodox views on religion and marriage aroused widespread controversy upon its 1883 publication.

Synopsis:

The first great South African novel chronicles the adventures of 3 childhood friends who defy societal repression. A gripping indictment of the rigid Boer social conventions of the 19th-century.

Synopsis:

Lyndall, Schreiner's articulate young feminist, marks the entry of the controversial New Woman into nineteenth-century fiction. Raised as an orphan amid a makeshift family, she witnesses an intolerable world of colonial exploitation. Her only friends are Em and Waldo, children with destinies and longings very different from her own.
