Publisher's Summary

Celebrated journalist Lauren St. John "bears witness to a remarkable story" (Publishers Weekly) in this striking memoir of her African childhood. In the 1970s St. John lived on a Rhodesian farm that should have been paradise. But the specter of war hung over the land, filling every day with peril and uncertainty.

Critic Reviews

"Lush descriptions of both the terrain and the war distinguish St. John's moving memoir." (Booklist)
