The Steps Of The Sun by Caroline Harvey
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In 1899 the lives of many young men are threatened in the bloody battles of the Boer War. Sent down from university, Matthew Paget enlists to go to South Africa as a trooper. He goes in search of adventure, only to find himself caught up in the turmoil of this beautiful but tragically divided country - and in love with a girl on the enemy side. Will, his cousin, goes out to the war as a career officer. A man filled with the ideals of duty and service, but swindled by a one-time friend and dazzled by a flirtatious beauty, he discovers a life far removed from peace time Victorian England. Fighting in a cruel conflict thousands of miles from home, both men, and the women they love, find themselves entangled in a drama they could never have foreseen.
