Author’s Note

I dedicate this book to my beloved husband, Weldon Cooke, who has always believed in me and who gave me the encouragement I needed to take on this endeavor.

I dedicate it also to my sons, Arthur, Dale and Phillip who were born in Zambia, Central Africa, lived with me in the shadow of Table Mountain in Cape Town on the very Southernmost tip of that Continent and who share with me the memories of that beautiful, intriguing land.

Lastly, I wish to mention the unwavering support of the Executive Editor of Elderberry Press, David St. John and to thank him for his part in making the experience of writing and publishing this novel, a happy and most satisfactory one indeed.

The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,

Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit

Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,

Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.

Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam


This is a tale that began over half a century ago in Southern and Central Africa — regions that have all but disappeared in terms of how they looked politically at that time.
