I thoroughly enjoyed the Langani trilogy set in Kenya - very good reading! I have a grandson who is hoping to be accepted to aid in Elephant research later this year in Kenya so I enjoyed learning about the couple who were involved in the same pursuit.

This trilogy follows a group of friends, centred around three girls, from school days through adulthood. There are childhood dreams, adolescent angst, adult drama and trauma and all described and addressed in a sophisticated way with the beautiful backdrop of Africa and later in the series Europe. This is a fitting end to the tales, and comes highly recommended. Do read the first two books first or you would not benefit from the full enjoyment of the series.

Really loved this book along with the other two in this series about the girls growing up in Kenya. It was great how it followed their individual lives and I felt that I knew them. The history ad background was very interesting. Thanks

What an absolutely fantastic book I could not put it down it had me in tears once or twice. I read it in 3 days and now can't wait
for another book by these authors. I have read every book they have written up to now, roll on the next one.

I was really looking forward to this book as I really enjoyed the previous 2 books. It started out as promising and picked up on the lives of the three women well, but I was really disappointed as I read on. The storylines became totally unrealistic and ridiculous for a story set in 1970's Kenya, and the last line of the book may as well have been "and they lived happily ever after"! Very disappointed to be honest.

The third of the Langani trilogy, this book doesn't disappoint. Continuing the story of Hannah, Sarah and Camilla, three girls from very different backgrounds who meet at school in Kenya, the trilogy follows them through adolescence, their twenties and thirties, finally finishing as they enter their forties in the mid-1980's. This wonderful, moving story set in Kenya and Europe has real depth and whilst it could be read as a stand-alone, I feel it's better to have read the first two books and so develop a better understanding of the characters, their histories, their lives, their flaws and everything that goes into making them the people they are and their interactions with eachother.
What I particularly like is that the authors don't shy away from the nastier aspects of Kenya's political history nor did they seek to make the girls perfect in any way. Their characters are well-rounded and believable with strengths and flaws that allow the reader to identify with each girl at different times throughout their stories. There is a harshness to their African lives and they all face hardship, loss, death and destruction through the years along with the joys of love but what maintains them throughout is their bond of sisterhood which, like any great friendship, suffers from their imperfections and is strained to breaking point at times.
This is a brilliant series and I hated coming to the end - I just wanted it to continue and hope that there will be a sequel with the next generation.

I had very much enjoyed reading the first two books in this African trilogy. This, third, book was something of an anticlimax. It's almost as if writing a third book was an afterthought by the authors who had, effectively, finished the story line at the end of the second book. The reader learns more of the personal lives of the three 'blood sisters' as they move into their 30s and 40s but there are no more dramatic events.
