This novel will keep you glued to the pages from start to finish as it takes many unexpected turns.
Dawie van der Heifer was born into an extremely poor family, the third eldest of twelve living children. His father was an alcoholic, and his mother died giving birth to her umpteenth stillborn child.
After running away from home he found work on a rich man’s farm and soon became the nymphomaniac wife’s lover and student, learning the ways of the world, following her around the European houses of ill repute, as well a the casinos where he made enormous amounts of money.
Seeking a life of his own he returns home with a great deal of money and teaches his siblings what he has learnt from the French brothels. Together they turn their derelict farm house into a magnificent spa, attracting the rich from across the world.
During this time Amanda Jooste and Andries van Aswegen, both rich and powerful people, have an affair and produce a child, Elizabeth. This causes their relationship to sour. Elizabeth, a naive clean-living farm girl, never knows her true identity and when she dies in a motor accident her astral being drifts around the universe for ten years looking for a cadaver into which she can be reincarnated.
Amanda, Elizabeth’s mother, worked hard for the community but like the rest of them looked down on the Van der Heifer’s. This perception she passed onto Elizabeth. The mortal remains that Elizabeth’s astral soul chose to inhabit is, unbeknown to her, none other than that of Magriet, the eldest of Dawie’s sisters. When she discovers this, and also who some of the clients are whom she is expected to service, things become a dilemma for the virgin Elizabeth.
