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.

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 only got half way through it and gave up...didn't really get going into anything interesting. As a 5 star review said...maybe I should have read the previous two books in the trilogy first. I had hoped for more of "Africa" and instead got confusing Indian family names to try and remember, a couple's infertility problems...no thanks.

I have lived in Africa through much of the time written about in this Trilogy & the vivid descriptions of Africa has brought it all back in Technicolour. The little dramas within have kept me reading into the night.
Thoroughly enjoyable. Memories.

I reached the end of the Langani trilogy with a sigh, partly of sadness at saying goodbye to these people that I had come to know so well, and partly of pleasure at having found one (even better, three!) of those books that truly immerses you so that it becomes as real as your own life ... I marked it as four rather than five stars as I felt the momentum was slightly lost after the first two books, but if possible I'd have given it 4 1/2. I admit to having skipped over some of the leopard passages which, though fascinating, went on slightly too long, and I did get rather lost in the ramifications of the schemes of Rabindrah's confusing family!

The melodrama was perhaps pitched a little too high in this final book: and the murders, political skullduggery, love tangles, accidents and family crisesbecame a bit far-fetched, but basically I loved this book and the first two of the trilogy and am truly sad to say farewell to Langani and to Hanna, Sarah and Camilla.

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.

Bought this as my friend lived in Africa for 22 years. He could hardly put it down. I had ordered two by mistake so gave one to my sister - and she is enjoying it very much. Very good story - they say.

This trilogy was the most interesting story I have read in a long time. The African history interspersed with the characters which were believable and made you want to know what happened to them. I would have loved their to be a fourth book about these people who I became engrossed with.
