About this product
- DescriptionThe critically acclaimed debut vel The Fever Tree, by Jennifer McVeigh, a Richard and Judy bookclub pick. 1880, South Africa - a land torn apart by greed...Frances Irvine, left penniless after her father's sudden death, is forced to emigrate to the Cape. In this barren country, she meets two very different men - one driven by ambition, the other by ideals. When a smallpox outbreak sends her to the diamond mines, she is drawn into a ruthless world of greed and exploitation, of human lives crushed in the scramble for power. But here - at last - she sees her path to happiness. Torn between passion and integrity, she makes a choice that has devastating consequences... Place and people come alive in this book...a gripping story. (Kim Edwards, author of The Memory Keeper's Daughter). I loved it. It's a beautifully written vel of great feeling. (Rachel Hore, best-selling author of The Place of Secrets). Engrossing, emotionally poised and elegantly written - I absolutely loved it. (Vara Bennett, author of The People's Queen). A compelling read with a Gone with the Wind feel to it - I was hooked. (Katharine McMahon, author of The Alchemist's Daughter). An epic story of love, deception and courage. (Patricia Wastvedt, author of The German Boy).
