About this book

Bitter heuning (ePub) | General Fiction

Hermione Suttner

A moving saga about the life and times of a young woman from the Sandveld, a lesser-known valley between the West Coast and the Swartland near Piketberg. Here they grow tea, potatoes and heerenboontjies. It is a story of love, and of retribution. Mara has one wish only – to marry Theunis, heir to Misverstand, the neighbouring farm.

(Watch a live reading by Linda Rode.)

But her father is a wilful, domineering man. And the landscape of the Sandveld is dry, bitter and often very lonesome.

Translated from the unpublished English manuscript by Linda Rode.
