Smashwords book reviews by Wendy Altshuler

on Aug. 19, 2012
Wendy Unsworth has constructed a well woven novel with believable characters and vivid description. Once half way through, I could not put the book down. The prose and dialogue constantly throw light onto character nuance and motivation, and Unsworth has a knack for well illustrated--and sometimes comical uses--of metaphor. When Ellie takes a volunteership at a school in Africa, she knows it will be a new and exciting challenge. But she can never predict the events culminating in the erupting violence of a political coup. (SEMI SPOILER ALERT) I was a little surprised by the dealings of fate at the conclusion and was hoping for a good old-fashioned police investigation, but then, this is in keeping with the trend of modern protagonists who often take justice into their own hands. Aside from a few very minor blips, I would still give this 5 stars.
