Audible Editor Reviews

Reeling from a doomed relationship, Jack Morgan jumps at the opportunity to take a UN posting in Kenya, where he falls in love with the Serengeti, the vibrant culture of the country, and Malaika, a Maasai who has escaped her painful tribal past to become a proud and self-sufficient woman. Frank Coates' novel is a clash of love, culture, and traditions, delivered with tenderness by David Tredinnick, who also handles a multinational array of accents - from Australian to American to African - with equal aplomb. Tredinnick shines as the lovesick Jack, whose fragile emotional state blossoms into intense passion.

Great early effort of a new Author

Captivating story with sometimes unnecessary deviation. When listening, make sure you can have accelerated speed of 1.5x or you will be asleep very quickly
