Dreams of Empire, desire for land and its hidden mineral wealth and for power over a proud and warlike people: such were the forces that drove Englishmen in Queen Victoria's last years to thrust deep into an untamed continent and found a new dominion. With those Pioneers rode Ralph Ballantyne, a man whose ambition and sense of destiny made him at once his leader's greatest servant and betrayer. From the last years of the nineteenth century this broad novel sweeps through to the present day when the confrontation of two families, mirroring the conflict of two nations, comes full circle. The Angels Weep is about the way the seeds of hatred sown in battles fought round issues of land and race will germinate and produce anew ugly sprouts of the same tragic stock. An exciting, colourful and moving novel in both its parts, it is the third of the Ballantyne sequence of four novels.
Book Description In this book set in southern Africa, an adventurer and his missionary sister establish a legacy that will dominate part of a continent for decades to come, and a soldier meets his destiny in a battle that will forever scar two opposing races.
