The Story Of An African Farm by Olive Schreiner

Olive Schreiner (1855 - 1920) originally published The Story of an African Farm in 1883 under the pen name Ralph Iron. She tells the story of an unmarried mother who lives in isolation on the South African frontier. Two cousins grow up in the 1860's on a lonely Bible-dominated farm. Em is fat, sweet, and contented; while Lydia is clever, restless, beautiful, and doomed. A bombastic Irishman who gains uncanny influence over the girls' stepmother disrupts their childhood. Details about her life reflect much of the author's own experience as a hidden friend to the poor and women in trouble.

The Story of an African Farm is an account about a family and how they interact in a South African farm. This is a book that is hard to put down. With is unfamiliar depiction of life style unfamiliar , it still comes out as engaging, inspirational and real. This is striking thing about the story is its deep portrayal of women . This is a highly recommendable book for readers who want to get a good grasps of the different perceptions and treatment of women in our world. It reminded me of another great read, The Usurper and Other.

Very insightful story and plot. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters are memorable and the storyline just continues to thicken and grow more intriguing as you read. The story begins with the main characters as children. Waldo, Lyndall and Em were perfect comrades for each other as they grew up together on an African farm. After becoming adults they tend to go their separate ways, but they always come back home. Dramatic book you will not readily forget. I would recommend for High School literature and for adults.
