About this book

Vermis op Allesverloren | General Fiction

Anchien Troskie

When her eccentric aunt Erta vanishes, Melinda calls in a private detective to help find her, concerned that Erta might be in danger. Erta was known as a witch because she made herb potions and read tea cups. The community leaders of Allesverloren, especially Oudominee, were open in their condemnation of Erta, even blaming her for the drought. The town never forgave her, a poor white, for marrying one of their golden boys and later returning to the town where she reinvented herself as herb doctor and concerned herself with the plight of the poor in the coloured community.
