The Knysna Castaways by Ian Uys(2001)

Set in the turbulent late eighteenth century, this vibrant story traces the romantic and dramatic lives of the shipwrecked daughter of an English peer, the kindly Boer family who rescue and raise her and her aristocratic father's quest to find her.

The beautiful English castaway finds romance with her rescuer, only to have their bliss shattered as British invaders pursue them into the rugged Swartberg mountains.

The origins of Knysna and the arrival of George Rex, reputed son of George Ill, provide a rich background tapestry of the troubled times between the American Revolution and the second British occupation of the Cape. Battles, romance, intrigue and heroism build up to a thrilling climax in this saga of the infant Cape Colony.

Set in the Cape Colony in 1800 (Currently approximately the Western Cape Province,South Africa)
