First-class African read
WIND SONG, by East London born author Graham Lancaster, has all the ingredients for a first-class read:
Plenty of action, mystery, pathos, romance and excitement. Absorbing in its detail, this is a book not easy to put down!
Fast paced and racy, Graham's story takes the reader from the Valley of a Thousand Hills (where his engaging hero,
Trader, leaves home and family) to post war Zimbabwe. Trader's unexpected encounter on the road with the vivacious Chelsea and their instant
mutual attraction is the beginning of a tempestuous relationship. On the dance floor, at the nightclub where Chelsea is the main singing attraction, Trader also
meets the enigmatic Dr Shona Bradshaw, beautiful and lonely – taking up the challenge of her friends' dare.
Grahams descriptions – Lake Kariba in all her moods, Trader's fishing trips and camping at Charara – will strike a chord in the hearts of readers who have
experienced this magnificent lake. Trader's and Shona's ordeal attempting to rescue a party of tourists whose houseboat has capsized in the storm
and the details of the crocodile attack will have you on the edge of your seat.
A thoroughly enjoyable book. I look forward to its sequel.
