Omtale: Echoes from a Distant Land
The people, the tribes, the landscape, the legends one knows Africa like Frank Coates. A powerful story of doomed love against the backdrop of Africa ...Caught between the traditions of his Kikuyu tribe and the disturbing new ideas of the missionaries, Sam Wangira is offered a new life far away in the white man's world. Between the wars, white Kenya is a land of hunting safaris, horse racing and outrageous parties. Dana Northcote is a celebrated socialite but when she embarks on a dangerous, passionate affair, the consequences will echo through the generations. Spanning the first half of the twentieth century and culminating in Kenya's fight for independence from the British Empire, ECHOES FROM A DIStANt LAND is a vivid evocation of a nation in turmoil, and a story of a love that dared to cross the divide.
