Despite the Darkness

South Africa under the State of Emergency – 1985

by

It is 1985, South Africa is rapidly becoming ungovernable and a State of Emergency has been declared. Hope for a peaceful end to apartheid can still be found, but it has dwindled to a flickering candle flame in the encroaching darkness…

A knock on the door at midnight; a student on the run from the Special Branch looking for a safe house and transport to the border; a bomb exploding outside the Supreme Court and killing an old man – all come together to confront Cameron Beaumont, a History lecturer under constant surveillance by the security police and subject to regular death threats, with a crisis. How should he respond – torn as he is between his desire to play his part in the struggle against the vicious oppression of apartheid and his need to protect his wife, Jules, and the children he adores? And the death threats turn out to be just the beginning.
