About the Book

Two worlds-apart young adults, Diane-Lynn, a highly gifted graphic designer working in Paris, and Julien, a self-proclaimed adventurer and talented caricaturist living in Cape Town, meet under unusual circumstances and embark on a philosophical journey through rainy nights and gale force winds along the Cape Peninsula, with unexpected consequences culminating in a possible threat to religious faith.

About the Author

Alfred Mielacher was born in 1956, the only son of an Austrian farmer. As a child, he was told that Gypsy blood ran through his veins. A century earlier, Gypsies on their annual return to help with farmwork during the summer months, had not only mended pots and pans but the daughter as well. After finishing his studies, he embarked on extensive voyaging to satisfy his inborn abenteuerlust, exploring what the big wide world had to offer in comparison to the small farming community he was born into. During his travels, he kept a journal of his experiences, which sparked a passion for writing. He currently lives near the Kruger National Park in South Africa.
