Travelling Light, Penguin, 2005

Love can be tough, especially starting again on the wrong side of forty. So when Griet Swart falls for a beautiful Italian puppeteer, she is plagued by doubts and demons – not to mention her noisy, nosy sisters.

She calls on all the gods to bring her lover closer to her, but when they finally respond and Luca announces his intention to spend time in South Africa, Griet is stricken. What will he think of her eccentric family and her beloved land? And what will her family think of him? The plane touches down and the journey begins...

A whimsical tale of the risks we take for love, magical and harshly realistic, funny and tragic – a true reflection of love and life in the modern world.
