About the book: 
After an unexpected request from his father, Henry Knott returns to the Karoo farm on which he spent a fractured childhood. Painful memories force him to revisit a tragedy in which he was fatefully implicated. Henry has to come to terms with how this event has shaped his adult life, his marriage and the conflicted emotions he feels towards the place of his birth. Award winning author Alistair Morgan’s The Land Within traces the deep connections between tragedy and love, regret and longing.
