Bridging the Divide – The Story of a Boer-British Family
“Angela Read Lloyd’s skillfully crafted memoir deserves a wide readership. Her use of contemporary letters and photographs gives this book a quality of immediacy. It is a beguiling picture of white South African lives as they were lived in what now seems another world.” Cape Times.
“When Angela Lloyd opened a leather trunk which she had found in her old family home in Johannesburg, she found a jumble of letters, photographs and documents covering a time span of well over a century. There was a package of pictures dating from the Jameson Raid, and a sheaf of telegrams from the Anglo-Boer War. The end result of this discovery is a remarkable family saga, and [an] enthralling essay in South African social history from the late 19th century to the present day.
