Alexander Strachan se Brandwaterkom is ’n dubbelloop-roman: Dit is enersyds ’n aangrypende, bloedstollende verhaal oor die lewe van een van die berugste Boereoffisiere, andersyds is dit ’n boeiende ondersoek na die verleidelike, soms selfs verraderlike manier waarop verhale van ons besit neem en ons verbeelding op loop jaag.
Met verbluffende vernuf trek Strachan albei snellers van die roman gelyk af.
Vida se beste vriend staan uiteindelik op trou. Maar as hy hom lewenslank wil opsaal met ’n meisie wat in alle opsigte die Barbie-model ’n treetjie voor is, is dit sy saak. Dit is wel hinderlik dat sy as “best woman” ’n tuxedo-aandrok moet dra en alles wat daarmee saamgaan om die verloofde gelukkig te hou. Ook die feit dat hulle haar met die verloofde se broer wil afpaar. Maar net vir die troue en net vir haar beste vriend is dit ook seker nie te veel gevra nie. En die man is regtig ’n vangs, as sy eerlik wil wees. Terwyl haar beroepslewe as argitek ook ’n onverwagte trap of twee styg en sy daarmee probeer tred hou, doem ander komplikasies op: haar ewig onvergenoegde ma, haar immer swerwende pa, ongeoorloofde affairs begin aan die orde van die dag lyk, ’n ramparty haak ampertjies uit en ’n naweek in die Bosveld het rampspoedige gevolge. As daar ooit ’n moontlikheid was dat Vida se beste vriend eintlik die liefde van haar lewe is, is dit nou te laat. Die strykkwartet speel al die troumars, letterlik. En Vida se sin vir humor is meestal al wat haar staande hou.

Sy herleef die ontsetting van destyds in nagmerries en onverwagse terugflitse wat herinneringe oproep wat sy onbewustelik onderdruk het. Wat het alles op Phuket gebeur? Watter rol het Ettienne gespeel? Sal dit genesing bring as sy die verlede gaan konfronteer? Of sal sy terugval in depressie en ontkenning?
