Product Description

Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Written Romance 14 Aug. 2012 This is the first book I have read by Hannah Fielding and I will start by saying it won't be my last. I won this book in a competition and what a prize it turned out to be. Hannah Fielding has a writing style which draws you into the book and immerses you in it. The characters are real and I felt I knew each and every one of them personally. The main female character Coral Sinclair is a strong character but she also has weaknesses and foibles, which prevents her from being the usual cardboard cut-out of a leading female in a romance.. The main male character and Coral's love interest is Rafe de Montfort again has many interesting sides to his character. This book is set in Kenya and I found myself being transported there, the sites, smells and sounds are so perfectly described. This is essentially a romance with a some measure of tension and mystery in it's pages. Is Rafe all he seems to be and what is in his past that cannot be revealed. What is the mystery of Coral's fathers final days. I cannot say too much without giving the game away, but this held the tension nicely throughout the book. This being a novel the path of true love does not run smoothly, but it maintained interest in the story until the end. The ending is somewhat predictable but this does not detract from the book in any way. I would definitely recommend. --Amazon

5.0 out of 5 stars cant wait for her next book., 19 May 2013 By donna You know that feeling when you discover a new writer you just click with? Thats me with Hannah Fielding. Her book stands apart from most of the romance I read these days. You can feel her background coming through, her travels , her French upbringing. Her writing is so poetic and vivid, and the story hooked me from the start. I want to be Coral, living in a more innocent time in a beautiful, hot location, falling for a rich, attractive , broody man. Can't wait for her next book. --Amazon

5.0 out of 5 stars From Africa with love, 15 Feb. 2014 By Sardinia01 "gadget gran" I love romantic books, not chiclit, but stories that have great characters who you can care about, but also exotic back grounds with a definite sense of being and place. BURNING EMBERS performs in all these. Two strong characters who come together in Kenya in the 70's. We feel the tension, the growing attraction and finally their awareness of their feelings, all which draw you into this book. This is a story you can go back to, to feel again, the emotions that are so beautifully expressed in the book. Read this and you will certainly be looking out for other books by Hannah Fielding. --Amazon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

As someone who does not read romantic novels often I was delighted to come across Burning Embers. What a delight! Here is a book that is true to its genre and that transfers us to a world of true love and romance, not one of artificial excitement and fleeting emotion that we are most often bombarded with these days. This is a book that talks about the purity and the transformative power of love, a feeling that one cannot control even if it come about as a result of a moments connection with a stranger.

What I enjoyed the most about this book was not only the author's romantic description of the intense feelings amongst the two main protagonists, Coral and Rafe, but that it was set in one of the most historically important times for Kenya. Hannah Fielding's underlying description of the political situation in Kenya in the 1970s, whilst not the focus of the book, is at times more palpable than some of the historical books that I have read on this subject. Here is an author of a wonderful romance who intuitively seems to have understood Mboya's role in Kenya's politics at the time and the ripple effects his assassination had on the future of the country.

In addition, this is not a naïve book - the author understands that behind every fulfilled love there is likely to be an unfulfilled one. Here the role of Morgana is crucial. It is clear that her love for Rafe will never be reciprocated but notwithstanding this her love is pure, strong and protective. The author's focus on emotion instead of on the culmination of its fruits is important, it shows that love should be cherished for what it is at all times, it points out that often it is more important to love than to be loved.

I mentioned to a friend that I was looking for a new book and she recommended Burning Embers. I downloaded it on my Kindle later that evening and, once I started, could not stop reading. One might say that Burning Embers is a romance - it is, and a very sensual and gripping one - but what really stands out is the exquisite prose and insight into colonial life in Kenya. The obviously thorough research, vivid descriptions and flawless character development combine for an intelligent and enjoyable read.

Format: Paperback
Burning Embers, the debut novel by Hannah Fielding, is a contemporary historical romance set in the world of the privileged classes of 1970s' Africa. The story is centred on the return of Coral, the book's main character, a young girl returning to Africa after many years to reclaim her inheritance. The plot essentially follows her first year in Africa as she matures emotionally and falls in love with a handsome but complicated older man, Rafe, her neighbour, who is not at all what he first seems.

I love the detailed description used in this book, and the author's obvious passion for the setting, its people, wildlife and scenery - it really made the book come alive. For a few hours I was whisked away to somewhere hot and exquisitely beautiful. My favourite location in the book is the waterfall and lake: `There, in the middle of the depression, entirely enclosed by flowering shrubs, lay a phosphorescent expanse of water, shimmering like a sheet of silk in the rays of the midday sun. High above, a solid mass of white foam thundered from a narrow gulley; it leaped down, rolling over part of a sheer wall of mountain that stood like an impassive sentinel, its head in the clouds.'

As expected, this book delivers many surprising complications in Coral and Rafe's love story, including a step-mother, ex-lovers, illness, accidents, misunderstandings and sorcery - all of which make this book a real page turner. At first, Coral is naive and she has to learn to make her own judgements in many aspects of her life, despite the unhelpful input of others who want to influence her to behave in certain ways for their own ends.
