“I have certainly known more men destroyed by the desire to have a wife and child and keep them in comfort than I have seen destroyed by drink...”                                                                           (William Butler Yeats, Diary, 1909)

Southern Africa during the 1870s.

Jakob Klein, a liberal-minded Jew from Bavaria, has been living in the small town of Rouxville in the Orange Free State for well over a decade.

He will try anything to support his wife and family. His questionable business ethics often cause him to sail close to the wind. Now, he has sailed far too close, and his life has capsized.  His dubious dealings have lost him his home and livelihood. His young family have had to leave him to seek refuge with relatives in the Cape Colony.

Now, he is in jail, awaiting transfer to Bloemfontein, where the serious case against him is to be heard by the highest court in the land. With only his guards for company, he has plenty of time to wonder what sort of future fate holds for him and whether he will ever see his family again.

Read Jakob's story, a tale of debt and deception, in Rogue of Rouxville, Adam Yamey’s second historical novel. It is an adventure set mostly in the wilds of what was later to become the Union of South Africa.
