I found this book on my cousins bookshelf in Surabaya. I was stayin there and had nothing to do, then just found this book and when I saw the year of publishing I was like... damn, my parents hadnt even met then. It was 1968!!!The plot of this book went by just like other romantic books. But what make it kindda special is that the setting was during the Boer War in Mafeking, South Africa. I mean, whats more romantic that a war-lovestory? What I dont like is that the main character did adultery although may be justified in the cause if war.The Lady is Miss Lizzie Willoughby, an English lady (supposed to be the wife of a military veteran that didnt want to divorce her, but let her go by her maiden name to go and stay with her brother in Natal, Africa).

And on her way to Africa met a housewife, Alice Patridge who stoneheadeadly went to Africa with her 3 daughters to live with her husband despite her husbands warning of the coming of the war. Pity of the mess Alice had, Lizzie decided to accompany her to Mafeking. On their way to Mafeking she made acquaintence with a British war reporter, Thomas Wheeler then the two fell in love. But it was forbidden love, they both knew (Lizzie werenot made divorcee by her husband and Tom had a wife and a son back in England), but finally took a risk on continuing it.The story went on with the war situation, where Lizzie became a helping nurse and Tom the runner both for the purpose of inteligence and making the news.

With lots of casualties of war, heartbreaking this novel is worth the read. Not to mention the sad-happy ending, but dont worry, Ms.Eden had prepared you for that kind of ending :)
