South Africa – 1976 to 1994

A time of turbulence as the struggle against apartheid reaches its zenith, pushing South Africa to the brink. But for one small boy in the leafy northern suburbs of Johannesburg … his beloved housekeeper is serving fish fingers for lunch. This is the tale of Hamish Charles Sutherland Fraser – chorister, horse rider, schoolboy actor and, in his dreams, 1st XV rugby star and young ladies’ delight. A boy who loves climbing trees in the spring and a girl named Reggie. An odd child growing up in a conflicted, scary, beautiful society. A young South African who hasn’t learnt the rules.

She’s lost her job and her friends. And her husband won’t tell her why. As Erica starts to put together the clues and pieces, a picture emerges of what has happened. A picture that is fatally flawed.
