The Runaway Horses

Book review: The Runaway Horses by Joyce Kotzè

 

The Runaway Horses  recounts the personal cost to family during wartime.

 

In her historical novel The Runaway Horses, author Joyce Kotzè portrays an engrossing tale of the injustice of the 1899-1902 Boer War in Africa.

 

Two sets of cousins, Boer and British, find their destinies inexorably intertwined in the politics and mayhem of the conflict. From Transvaal to Victorian England, the cousins form strong bonds, which are tested on the battlefields of South Africa.

Opposite Mandela by Tony Leon 326 x 500

Knysna Literary Festival: Remarks of Tony Leon on Opposite Mandela – South Africa Now versus Then 

 

 

 

There is much doom and gloom in the air, and certainly across the airwaves if you listen to the radio, of South Africa right now. Our currency has crashed by no less than 90% since April 2011 measured against the dollar; parliament is in chaos; the public service which has ballooned in numbers from 1 million on 1994 to 3.1m people today and one in three jobs in the economy is paid for by the taxpayer. Yet the Post Office no longer delivers letters, Eskom is on the constant verge of blackouts and is in the midst of a boardroom war while it is technically insolvent. Public assets are looted and the currency is debauched.
