review 1: I always enjoy a novel set in Africa. This one had a little of everything and was captivating enough to keep me reading. Quite a few twists and turns I didn't see coming, which normally is a plus for me, but I felt the author got carried away with that element at the end of the book. If you are looking for a "tidy" little ending, this book isn't for you. This book could have been so much better, but the author couldn't make up his mind whether it was a soap opera or a novel. It was the soap opera elements that started to irritate me after a while. This book had the potential to be a five-star book, but the author lost his direction and that is why I had to rate it at three stars.
review 2: An oddly engaging story set at an archeological dig in Kenya. It m
... moreanages to combine a little bit of history (with Kenya's bid for independence), a murder mystery, conflict between Europeans and local tribes, an archeological discovery, and even a little romance. Somehow it manages all of this without becoming cluttered or without anyone part taking focus away from the rest of the story. Worth reading. less

Read this by a pool on holiday and as such was a nice easy summer read.
Good read, predictable ending. Language was abit old fashioned.
Beautiful and heart wrenching. Just like life.
Interesting story.
