Author : Damien Barr

1901. The height of the second Boer War in South Africa. Sarah van der Watt and her son are taken from their farm by force to Bloemfontein Concentration Camp where, the English promise: they will be safe.

2010. Sixteen-year-old outsider Willem just wants to be left alone with his books and his dog.  But, worried he's not turning out right, his ma and her boyfriend send him to New Dawn Safari Training Camp - here they `make men out of boys'. Guaranteed.

The strands that tie these 2 stories together will make you think, the outcome will break your heart.  This novels informs of South Africa's past and present in a very readable way.  Brilliant
