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.
