That's such a beautiful and moving story. Oh, the horrible price of precious human lives and the suffering caused by war!
The title attracted my attention too, and it fits perfectly. So well done.
A goose bump-inducing story. Well done!

Well done! I have written a few pieces that focused on the Boer War and the concentration camps that were built. It was lovely reading something that was so familiar to me.

BTW - I used an Afrikaans phrase in my Diary entry!

Ek mis Suid-Afrika! Ek verlang.

Dear Dave,

This is one of the best short stories I've read on this site.

Your writing evokes the soul--the ravages of war and the impact on loved ones.
