In the broken country that is Zimbabwe, only the strongest can survive. Three families - the Bryants, the Quilter-Phipps, and the Ngwenyas - share a history as complex and bloody as the country itself. Dedicated conservationists Paul and Philippa Bryant face an enormous struggle: to save their farm and small herd of endangered black rhinos from corrupt government minister Emmerson Ngwenya. Twin brothers, ex-soldier Braedan and environmentalist Tate Quilter-Phipps join the fight.
But the brothers’ own history is fraught, and when they fall in love with the same woman, Natalie Bryant, their rivalry threatens to not only derail the attempt to save the rhinos, but also puts the lives of all involved at risk. And with Emmerson vowing to stop at nothing until he has control of the farm, a bloody showdown seems inevitable.
With blood feuds still to settle, every one of these players will be drawn into the fray, and not one will remain unscathed.

Edge of your seat story !
As usual very well researched and a well written history of Rhodesia, some of which I didn't actually know... plus naturally all the added action, excitement and intrigue thrown in.
Still though my only complaint is the pronunciation of local words, one ends up shouting corrections at the narrator. they really, really should have a South African to help out... lol
All Tony Park’s books was introduced to me by my lovely friend from Australia 🇦🇺.
This African Dawn story was romantic, full of action, drama and tragedy.
I enjoyed it immensely and I got few more books by the same author to go through.
Brought back memories
Where does African Dawn rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It is one of the best books I have listened to, although fiction it could well of happened, Events and situations are easy to relate to if you lived there during the period covered.
What did you like best about this story?
The first half, so much was the same as my growing up in Rhodesia, High school army etc.
The second half in many ways made me feel I made the right decision to leave Zimbabwe in 93 with my young family.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
The scene in Club Tomorrow (clubbies). Was the fish tank after it changed to Arckies though. Doesn't matter, bought back my youth and the taste of clubbies Steak rolls
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
If I didn't need to eat sleep or work then yes
Any additional comments?
Bought back memories, sayings and comments, and why we stayed and left the country.
Only complaint was the occasional pronunciation Selous, ter, Lomagundi and couple of others, but the message was still put across.
