Egypt is on the brink of civil war. It is not present day, but 1882, when an American journalist and British soldier meet in Alexandria and form a lifelong friendship. The journalist finds the big story he's been waiting for. The soldier, Benjamin Worthington, finds love with an Egyptian woman but duty sends him to India and then Hong Kong before returning to Egypt and then South Africa. He serves "when the sun never set on the British Empire." But that empire is beginning to set as those in the colonies demand independence. Meanwhile, the journalist, Rod Lee, returns to his home in Indiana. He finds love and more than he can handle when he battles the political and social corruption around him.

Steve Stroble grew up as a military brat, which took him from South Dakota to South Carolina to Germany to Ohio to Southern California to Alabama to the Philippines to Northern California. Drafted into the Army, he returned to Germany. He has been writing for publication since 1976 and after numerous tries at traditional publishing finally found a home at Createspace, Kindle, and Smashwords. With the present seeming to be a neverending ball of indecipherable confusion, he travels to the past by writing historical fiction and to the future with science fiction. "My sincere hope and prayer is that my books will give you something that you can use on your own journey through life."
