9780099501695: A Durable Fire (Langani Trilogy)

In the first years of Kenyan independence, three young women return to the East African highlands where they shared a carefree childhood. Hannah is struggling to preserve her heritage at Langani Farm, where a series of unexplained and violent attacks threaten her security and recent marriage. Sarah is studying elephant behavior in an area made dangerous by armed poachers, using her work as a salve for the death of her childhood sweetheart. Camilla, the international fashion icon, abandons her career in London and is drawn back to Kenya by her love for a charismatic hunter and safari guide. But there is a secret that hangs over Langani, overshadowing their efforts to establish themselves in the volatile circumstances of a new African nation. With the help of an ambitious Indian journalist, the three girls gradually uncover the truth about the murder of Sarah's fiance, and the continuing attacks on the farm and on their lives. The passions and hardships experienced by these unforgettable heroines, united again in their friendship and their love for the country of their childhood, make a magnificent, epic novel. This superb sequel to Blood Sisters confronts catastrophic loss and delirious happiness, savagery and degradation, limitless beauty, soaring hope, and redemption.

Barbara and Stephanie Keating are the authors of Blood Sisters and To My Daughter in France.

Review:

"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
