Publisher's Summary

Secrets haunt Adam Broadford’s extraordinary life.

The ugly divisions of race, religion, and politics in the early '60s and '70s Africa gnaws at him. Beauty and brutality are constantly at odds. Happiness and sadness are locked in a dance. And so much is his fault. But against a richly depicted backdrop with deeply resonating characters, there are gifts, wisdom, and murder. In the vital textures of the wild-game collection farm in Northern Rhodesia, Adam finds rescue, kindness, and killing. Adam is later sent to Pretoria and then to a renown boarding school in South Africa followed by serving in border warfare, And while working as a stoker on a steam engine in the Valley of a Thousand Hills, Adam decides to go AWOL.

No longer can he take on the consequences of living in Africa. A stowaway aboard a Union Castle ship, his pent-up secrets begin to unlock. But will his admission, at last, set him free?

Such a delight.

I love how this novel is read by the author. This is the first audiobook I have listened to which music was used alongside the reading.
I loved it. The story and performance of the narrator/author was outstanding. I will be listening to this book again, it is exciting. It’s is beautiful, as well beautifully sad at times.
