Along with this book that came to me by way of a Goodreads book give away came a lovely note from Mr. Rimmer stating that his other 2 novels were on sale from Amazon. I hope he is reading this when I say that I bought both of those books today and in these days of shrinking income I don't do that very much, so that is a really big deal. I look forward to reading more of the South Africa he obviously knows well and loves deeply. Then too, I do hope he reads this as, the medical transcriptionist that I am cannot help but say there are some, roughly 12, misplaced words that need to be edited, not mispelled, just in the wrong place sort of thing, and while they don't really detract from the reading he might wish to correct in the next printing and I would be happy to send him the list of pages and words, after all that is what MTs do, we help those physician's thoughts make sense in the printed record : This makes the second author, Anthony Whitt was the first one, and now Peter Rimmer, that I would probably never have known of if it was not for Goodreads.
My reading is much richer for having encountered them both Set in Rhodesia during the First War of Liberation it follows the fortunes of a family of early settlers, their infighting and their battles to survive. Adventure, excitement and historical set in the continent I miss, I was thrilled to find a new author on my favourite subject. He has left several unpublished manuscripts and I shall be looking out for those as soon as I have read all his other books. Not only a fascinating story, but a wonderful insight into the effects of the Boer war.
Not only a fascinating story, but a disturbing insight into the effects of the war on the Boer people. Another blight on Britain's history. Wonderful Book! I loved it. I enjoyed the history, the adventure, the characters, the descriptions of the African bush and the comments on the past, present and future politics of Africa.it.cojuceliparo.tk

The only problem with this book was that I couldn't put it down and thus it kept me from my work. On the whole I enjoyed this although there seemed to be one or two grammatical errors. Looking forward to reading the next episode. Absolutely wonderful story of a family trying to raise in status through marriage. Your heart breaks for the young loves. A nice surprise, as this is not the sort of book I would really go for but it turned out to be very good. Sebastian Brigandshaw has loved Emily all his life and she him and they were looking forward to getting married, when the rug was pulled out from under their feet!
Sebastian and Emily's fathers came to a financial agreement and Emily is basically sold to Sebastian's brother Arthur. Sebastian is sent away to sea and so the whole adventure begins! An epic saga of life in Africa and the families A nice surprise, as this is not the sort of book I would really go for but it turned out to be very good. An epic saga of life in Africa and the families lives begins. It does take a bit of concentration to follow the story at times but it is well worth it.
A great read with the promise of more to come.
