5.0 out of 5 stars Wilbur Smith has done it again!, 25 Oct. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Burning Shore (The Courtneys of Africa) (Paperback)
This is another work of art by Smith. It's a historical adventure like his other novels I have read, with the usual coloring of romance. This novel is however a little different from Smith's others, in that far from the usual plot of people going on missions to discover African treasures, this novel is about a woman who has had, and lost. She had wealth and a good family, and lost it all. She knew love, and lost that too. In the face of all this and as if this is not enough, she suddenly finds herself in a strange land and amongst strange people. Simply existing in this new land is a struggle. As we go through this ordeal with Centaine de Thiry, we find ourselves more riveted as the chapters go by, and we find ourselves learning more about this "dark" continent called Africa. Smith's novels do more than entertain, they educate, and this is what makes them literary genius. This one is no exception.
