Review:

"An epic of blood feuds, murder, betrayal, love, loss, forgiveness and redemption, this is as atmostpheric as sitting on a verandah with a gin and tonic, watching the African sunset. You'll feel a twinge of regret when there are no more pages to turn" ( The Times)

"It's a good story with a lot of sub-plots... The characters are all well-developed... [but] it is the African landscape and wildlife, which made the book for me" ( www.bookbag.co.uk)

"Praise for Blood Sisters: A tremendously accomplished, full-throated saga delivering romance, betrayal, murder and mayhem... the kind of book you have to read by torchlight under the bedclothes after lights out" ( Daily Mail)
