Jess

$0.00

by H. Rider Haggard

Synopsis

Sir Henry Rider Haggard was an English writer of adventure novels set in exotic locations, predominantly Africa, and the creator of the Lost World literary genre. His stories, situated at the lighter end of the scale of Victorian literature, continue to be popular and influential. He was also involved in agricultural reform and improvement in the British Empire. Set in nineteenth-century South Africa during a time of conflict, deprivation and hardship, the tale “Jess” is something of a departure from the typical formula of H. Rider Haggard’s novels. Following the travails of a pair of sisters who are fighting to save their family’s farm, Jess is a captivating look at the brave sacrifices that so many people are called on to make in wartime.
