Kathy Barron is a nurse in the war-torn African country of Rhodesia. In 1974 while on honeymoon in South Africa, a stranger triggers her long-suppressed memory.

‘I know you’ll think I’m crazy, Rick, but that’s the man I saw kill my brother.’

But the police consider Kathy an unreliable witness.

‘You were six-years-old, the light was poor and you’ve only come forward fifteen years later…leave the detective work to the police and go back to Rhodesia, Mrs Barron.’

Three years on, the Rhodesian Bush War has intensified. Kathy and her family leave the country they love and emigrate to South Africa. She revisits the scene of her brother’s murder – then starts her own search for his killer.

One of Stella’s favourite memories is sitting around a log fire under the African sky sharing stories with family and friends – the sound of laughter and chatter. She grew up in beautiful, rural Zimbabwe, where she lived through a terrorist war, then moved to South Africa and now lives in Australia. Her life journey has been eventful with its highs and lows.  

Stella’s characters portray strong-minded women and close friendships. Even when all seems lost the determination to endure. To Stella, family and friends are everything.
