From two discordant families, who merged through the marriage of the son of one and daughter of the other, came a young lady who would change their lives. Nicole Hoffman had extraordinary personality traits, the most amazing of which was her unpublicised claim that she could see into the minds of her predecessors. Injuries from a horrifi c horse-riding accident disclosed this trait, which medical science was unable to explain despite great efforts. Sensitively written and intriguing, R P Erasmus A Beautiful but Tormented Mind weaves a compelling tale of unity, love, persistence and perseverance.

About the author

R. P. Erasmus was born in South Africa in 1939 into an Afrikaans-speaking family. His father owned a small farm, producing day-old chicks. Cannibalism among them forced their destruction. The family moved to a town and lived near a gold mine. He formed a friendship with the son of a family originally from Yorkshire, which infl uenced both his career and his political views. He worked for a US corporation for thirty-seven years, of which three years were spent at its headquarters in Minnesota. That experience had a major infl uence on his family’s views about a free society. He and his wife Penny have three children and live in retirement in Somerset West.
