"An epic of blood feuds, murder, betrayal, love, loss, forgiveness and redemption, this is as atmostpheric as sitting on a verandah with a gin and tonic, watching the African sunset. You'll feel a twinge of regret when there are no more pages to turn" (The Times)
"It's a good story with a lot of sub-plots... The characters are all well-developed... [but] it is the African landscape and wildlife, which made the book for me" (www.bookbag.co.uk)
"Praise for Blood Sisters: A tremendously accomplished, full-throated saga delivering romance, betrayal, murder and mayhem... the kind of book you have to read by torchlight under the bedclothes after lights out" (Daily Mail)
Following the success of Blood Sisters, A Durable Fire continues the breathtaking saga of a friendship born in 1960s Kenya.See all Product description

Again, it is a well researched insight into the history of Kenya and how its early years of independence affected three young women and their immediate families. It shows how, in their own ways, they begin to come to terms with the tragic death of someone very close to each one of them. It shows how rifts develop due to misunderstandings and lack of communication; rifts which are later dealt with.
However, the traumas are not yet finished. There is a lot more for the girls to deal with as, yet again, someone is causing problems for the farm and the lodge. As we read on, we find out the root cause of these problems and we begin to understand more of the background to the period.
This is a fantastic book, and I agree with the previous reviewer. Treat yourself, and buy the set, then curl up and enjoy!
I can't wait for them to produce another book, and envy anyone discovering these authors for the first time!
