Tannie Maria, her beau Henk and the team from the local newspaper embark on a rollicking journey that only requires a tin of buttermilk risks to chew through as you turn the pages (and the recipe is at the back ) so what more could you want?
Love, murder and some surprising revelations romp through this story. Andrew introduces us to the tall dark stranger Zabanguni Kani who arrives with a flourish on a Ducati motorbike. A journalist whose political exposés have put her in mortal danger she seeks refuge with Tannie Maria and then takes her on a journey to the country’s northern parts where a past that Maria has tried to forget is finally unravelled – with surprising consequences.
Andrew’s special brand of writing conjures up a wonderful picture of a Karoo road trip, the emotions that run with family connections and how food can be a saviour in all situations. This is a story that is deliciously addictive and you’ll be hooked from the start.
