Jakob will never forget 1914, when a series of tragic events would take place that would determine his destiny. He was left alone. There was nothing left for him in this place but pain. He decided to leave his home and join his uncle in the Cape of Good Hope, Africa. Follow a young man as he leaves his pain behind in a place where he used to learn, live, and love, as he moves on to overcome grief in the new land of promise, Rhodesia. Here he experiences another side of life in author S.L. Swarts’ gripping novel of struggle, healing, moving on, war, change, and conflict.
S.L. Swart currently resides in Queensland, Australia, where she settled with her family over a decade ago. She was born in Bulawayo; and like so many ex-Rhodesians (Zimbabweans), she shares a great passion for the old country. Injasani was inspired by the distinct smell of the African bush upon her return to the Matobo Hills after a nine-year absence, the memories of her childhood returning with distinct clarity as she recalled sights and sounds unique to Rhodesians (Zimbabweans) of all races, genders and creeds.
