Product description

Review

A fascinating fictionalised account of the life of Lady Virginia Courtauld... a spirited account of a flamboyant life. -- Antonia Senior, The Times

Louisa Treger's brilliant second novel is a daring blend of romance, crime and history, and an intelligent exposé of the inherent injustice and consequences of all forms of oppression. -- Tsitsi Dangarembga, author of Nervous Conditions Published On: 2018-11-15

Treger has captured the last days of colonial Rhodesia perfectly. It is not just Lady Courtauld's story, but also the people fighting for the country's future. And while the book may only focus on a small piece of Zimbabwe's long complicated history, it does so with emotion and fire. -- Sally Partridge, author of Mine Published On: 2018-12-06

An absolutely gripping historical novel. -- Niso Smith

If you like your books to immerse you in a different time and place, you'll love this. -- Beth Miller, author of The Good Neighbour

A remarkable story about the bravery and compassion of a little-known couple at a pivotal time in the history of Zimbabwe. Treger switches elegantly between narrators, time and place, and wears her meticulous research lightly in this fascinating novel. -- Annabel Abbs, author of Frieda: A Novel of the Real Lady Chatterley

An evocative, beautifully written story with a mystery at its heart. Clever and compelling I couldn't wait to find out who shot The Dragon Lady, but at the same time I was so immersed that I didn't want it to end. Highly recommended -- Claire Douglas, author of Do Not Disturb

The prose is lyrical, vivid and compelling, whether describing the settings, the characters, or the suspenseful intrigue of the story's plot. It comes as no surprise to learn of Treger's deep love for Africa, which, in her own words, is flowing through her blood and marrow. -- Essie Fox, author of The Last Days of Eda Grey

The perfect blend of fact and fiction and a brilliant evocation of a fascinating time and place, told with haunting clarity. A remarkable achievement. -- Rebecca Mascull, author of The Wild Air

A haunting, evocative novel that explores what it is to be an outsider with its portrayal of a truly remarkable woman. Louisa Treger vividly brings to life both the historical characters of Virginia (Ginie) and Stephen Courtauld, and life in 1950s Rhodesia, in a deeply moving blend of fact and fiction that is intimately personal while painting a broader picture of a divided society. -- Alison Layland, author of Riverflow

Book Description

Historical fiction about Lady Virginia Courtauld in the last days of colonial Rhodesia, a daring blend of crime, romance and history, deeply evocative of time and place.
