Liza Frank has always assumed she was white. Accumstomed to the privileges of South Africa's apartheid system, the shock news that she is to be reclassified as 'coloured' comes as a crushing blow, forcing her to flee onto the harsh streets of Johannesburg and cutting her off from her childhood sweetheart Pieter - for mixed-race relations are strictly forbidden.


Joining the army in an attempt to forget, Pieter finds his Afrikaner background soon makes him a pawn in a racist system he has never really questioned. And when he is asked to eliminate an ANC member, formerly a childhood friend, his resolve is tested as never before. Sentinel to values that are rooted in prejudice, only through the rediscovery of love can Pieter begin to atone for his actions.


Reaching its gripping climax as the chains of apartheid are being stripped away, THE SENTINEL is a tremendously powerful story of loyalty and love, with characters as much in turmoil as the country they all feel is their own.
