Uitlander (Foreigner)

Historical novel set in South Africa around the turn of the 19th Century.
Tony Maxwell is currently working on an historical novel, Uitlander (Foreigner in Afrikaans) which tells the story of a young Canadian who fought on the side of the Boers during the Anglo-Boer War. It is the year 1890 in Calgary, Alberta and 18-year-old Robert Hamilton, while protecting his mother from a brutal assault by his drunken stepfather, is charged with his murder. Exonerated by the court, he is forced to flee to England to escape the murderous wrath of his stepfather's brothers. He seeks refuge in London with his mother's beautiful, younger sister Emma, who is married to the elderly Sir Reginal Lolandish, a wealthy, international arms dealer. His passionate love affair with the erotically charged Emma is behind his spur-of-the-moment decision to go to South Africa to seek his fortune in the Witwatersrand goldfields. His business interests in the Transvaal Republic bring him into close contact with the Boers, His sympathy with their cause finds him at odds with fellow Canadians, including his younger brother, David, who answer the call of the mother country to fight in the Anglo-Boer War.
