The Inn at Helsvlakte

The Inn at Helsvlakte is a bewitching tale set in the Karoo-like landscape of a mythical country beset by civil war. It is played out by an incestuous group of lives that are bound by secrets and lies, betrayals and loyalties, catastrophe and love.
A young man seeking revenge joins forces with a military Captain, an innkeeper and the innkeeper’s wife, to tussle the ghosts of truth trapped in the surreal landscape of a former ambush site.

Lyricism and fine description are used to appraise the recurring and intersecting life narratives of evocative characters.
