The White Shadow | [Andrea Eames]

The White Shadow

Tinashe is a young Shona boy living in a small village in rural Rhodesia. The guerilla war of the late 1960s haunts the bushlands, but rarely affects his quiet life. When his younger sister, Hazvinei, is born, Tinashe knows at once that there is something special about her. Their life in the village, once disturbed only by the occasional visits of his successful uncle and city cousin, Abel, now becomes entangled with the dual forces of the Shona spirit world and the political turmoil of the nation.

Publisher's Summary

Tinashe is a young Shona boy living in a small village in rural Rhodesia. The guerilla war of the late 1960s haunts the bushlands, but rarely affects his quiet life. When his younger sister, Hazvinei, is born, Tinashe knows at once that there is something special about her. Their life in the village, once disturbed only by the occasional visits of his successful uncle and city cousin, Abel, now becomes entangled with the dual forces of the Shona spirit world and the political turmoil of the nation.

As Tinashe, Hazvinei, and Abel grow older, their destinies entangle in ways they never expected. Tinashe is prepared to follow his sister anywhere, but how far can he go to keep her safe when the forces threatening her are so much darker and more sinister than he suspected?

    "Excellent story and narrator"

    I loved this book. I was completely enveloped in the drama of Tinashe's life. The setting, in Zimbabwe, so different from my own was very interesting and a good minor history listen. I found myself going online to learn more about that period of time and what took place. The narrator, Adetomiwa Edun was awesome! He did not just read the book, he BECAME Tinashe. Doing a search on his name online, it is not surprising to learn he is an actor in England. I could listen to him read the proverbial phone book.
