A Durable Fire




Following the success of Blood Sisters, A Durable Fire continues the breathtaking saga of a friendship born in 1960s Kenya.

In the first years of Kenyan independence, three young women return to the East African highlands where they shared a carefree childhood.

Hannah is struggling to preserve her heritage at Langani Farm, where a series of unexplained and violent attacks threaten her security and recent marriage. Sarah is studying wildlife, using her work as a salve for the death of her childhood sweetheart. Camilla, the international fashion icon, abandons her career in London and is drawn back to Kenya by her love for a charismatic hunter and safari guide.

But a secret hangs over Langani, overshadowing the friends' efforts to establish themselves in the volatile circumstances of a new African nation...

This superb sequel to Blood Sisters is a breathtaking saga of friendship, soaring hope and redemption.

Praise for A Durable Fire

An epic of blood feuds, murder, betrayal, love, loss, forgiveness and redemption, this is as atmostpheric as sitting on a verandah with a gin and tonic, watching the African sunset. You'll feel a twinge of regret when there are no more pages to turn

The Times

It's a good story with a lot of sub-plots... The characters are all well-developed... [but] it is the African landscape and wildlife, which made the book for me
