Publisher's Summary

In South Africa, the Vaal River divides Theo, the English sugar plantation owner, from Lizzie, the Dutch orphan girl he finds in the Transvaal. When the second war between the Cape Colony and the Boers breaks out, Theo and Lizzie are on opposite sides. Theo is bound to do what Cecil orders, and Lizzie is promised to Louis, the Boer leader. Without his mistress Vala and his friend Harish, all could be lost when Theo crosses the Vaal.

Engaging Novel Excellent Read

What made the experience of listening to Crossing the Vaal the most enjoyable?

The author was able to develop the characters in a detailed way in a very short time The pace of the novel is quick and you can get lost in the wonderful descriptions of South Africa. The book transports the reader to another place and another time. Very enjoyable.

What about Melanie Fraser’s performance did you like?

Ms. Fraser was excellent. Her treatment of the characters was quite involved. I would have thought that it was several different people narrating!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, if I had the time I surely would have.
