Publisher's Summary

The passionate love of a beautiful French aristocrat for a courageous South African aviator is begun and extinguished in the blazing skies of war-torn France. But Centaine de Thiry is bent on realizing some of the dreams she and Michael Courtney have shared, and she sets out to seek a future for his unborn child in the country of Michael's birth. But in a monumental odyssey of disaster and adventure, she must first brave all the combined terrors of war, shipwreck, thirst, fever, and the burning vastness of Namibia's Skeleton Coast before she sees another living soul.

    "Great read -waiting for the next in the series."

    Having spent a lot of my formative years in these parts of Africa I find it very easy to relate to Wilbur Smith's vivid descriptions of the African velt, the culture and humanity of its peoples, its heat, rain, and of course his animals are all very alive. I read this book, and its sequels, when they first came out in print and now I (at age 70) can re-live the colour and excitement. You can become addicted to Wilbur Smith, but DO NOT GET THE ABRIDGED versions, they are not well edited and a lot of the stories are lost to the listener.

    Alexander :-)
