BOOK II (CHAPTERS 18-29): TRIAL AND RECONCILIATION

CHAPTER 18

Book II opens word for word the same as Book I. But this time the scene stays on the rich uplands-High Place, the well-run farm of James Jarvis. Like Kumalo, Jarvis is a happily married man with a son he loves, a son who lives in Johannesburg. He is on the hilltop, thinking in a distant, uninvolved sort of way about the problems of erosion and lands reserved for blacks. The Afrikaner police he sees driving up the valley remind him of how Afrikaner and English whites are now intermarrying-something unheard of in his father's day. His wife Margaret meets the car, and sends Captain van Jaarsveld and Patrolman Binnendyk up the hill. When they meet Jarvis on a small plateau, van Jaarsveld breaks the news about Arthur.



It's the Tuesday the murder occurred; we've gone back a few days in time. At the house Jarvis himself tells Margaret, since she isn't physically strong. The captain arranges a plane that will have the Jarvises in Johannesburg by midnight.
