The people, the tribes, the landscape, the legends . . . no 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. 'powerfully recreates the turbulent past' - COURIER MAIL 'blockbuster adventure with authenticity' - WEEKEND AUStRALIAN
