I thoroughly enjoyed reading every word. I loved the way the author focuses on each of the characters. It starts off in Africa and immediately takes you back to good works being done in an English village, then whizzes you back into an African country. It is full of intrigues. The storyline is great with lots of twists in the tale. I couldn't put the book down, reading into the early hours of the morning. Very nostalgic for anyone who has lived out in Africa. I have bought several as Christmas presents and look forward to the author's second and subsequent novels.
