Summary

'We are Courtneys. We don't have to fight with our fists. We fight with power and money and influence. Nobody can beat us on our own ground.'  

A powerful family. A time of war.  

Centaine de Thiry Courtney has not only survived but thrived. A successful woman with two sons of her own: Shasa Courtney, the Courtney heir, and Manfred de la Rey, Shasa's half brother, her secret child raised solely by his father. At the time of the Great Depression, Centaine must make difficult decisions to ensure the security of her family - decisions that will affect Manfred and his father, Lothar de la Rey, a man Centaine once loved.  

But the world is changing, and conflicts greater than any the world has seen before are looming. Centaine and her children must face the upcoming war - where not all of them will be on the same side.... 

A Courtney Series adventure - book 2 in the Burning Shore sequence.

Excellent series good book

My favorite series next to the Eg yptian series. some of the description of Africa are inspiring, but , as you get deeper in the series the books realm expands. so there are a lot of things and complexities yo track... pay attention.
