Christopher's life is lived in the shadow of great historical events, with a childhood spent in colonial India, in South Africa during World War II, and then in bleak post-war England.The book tells of the individual tragedies (and comedies) of a family split by war, and facing the dilemmas of life in South Africa during the Apartheid years, when Aunt Babs commits her life to helping the black Africans in their quest for survival and freedom. Christopher returns to South Africa after the loss of his wife, taken by a crippling illness, and grief leads him to take many wrong turns. Will he ever be able to move out of the shadow of the valley of death and find a new meaning to his life?

The Synopsis and the Preface are a great beginning to a story that gripped me more as I kept turning the pages.
I found it compulsive and comfortable reading. Very soon I had a good knowledge of the characters from saint to sinner, sending our a message of cruelty, despair, love and hope.
The novel depicts suffering and grief. It is also a story full of hope, passion, love and comedy, with a "Happy Ever After" ending.
The author paints a picture as vivid as any film. My family and friends will the buying the book at the Launch Part on July 19th in Bath.
