Title: Mittee

Author: Daphne Rooke

Price: $7.50





Turbulent Lives

This is an eloquent novel of furious passion and tenderness in the exotic frontier days of South Africa. It is the story of Selina, the servant of mixed blood, of Mittee, her beautiful blonde mis­tress, and of the stronger-than-blood friendship that survived their love and hatred for Paul, aris­tocratic husband of Mittee and haughty master to Selina. Under the high South African sky, bound eternally to one another, they seek their happiness together and apart.

Beautiful, willful Mittee taught the children of the rich Transvaal landholders, with devoted, high-spirited Selina always by her side. Together they endured war and pestilence, native rebellion, and the unleashed violence of Paul who turned from Mittee's coldness to Selina's blind passion.

A story rich in memorable characters and rare in its ability to evoke the sounds and sights of a little-known land. Mittee is a novel distinguished for its power and delicacy.
