Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
An epic family saga set in South Africa.
It is 1924 and the fiery and volatile Charles McGill, a penniless immigrant, is devastated when he discovers that his friend, Lucas Connelly has become engaged to Addy Brody, the woman whom he hoped to marry himself. Charles drowns his sorrow in drink and seduces Hilde Richter, the unattractive daughter of a wealthy Durban businessman. When she finds she is pregnant, her father offers to set up Charles with his own bakery if he will marry her. Charles readily agrees, and unknown to Hilde the two men draw up a contract. It is the beginning of a bitter rivalry between Charles, Lucas, and Miles Davenport their former employer. The story spans a period of fifty years and leads us through the fortunes, joys and sorrows, successes and failures of the three families as they survive the depression, the war years and the isolation of South Africa.
