9780099565420: The White Shadow

A young boy struggles to protect his mysterious and gifted younger sister in this suspenseful story set against the backdrop of the Zimbabwe War of Liberation

"Look after your sister, Tinashe." Tinashe is a young Shona boy living in a small village in rural Rhodesia. The guerilla war of the late 1960s haunts the bushlands, but it only infrequently affects his quiet life; school, swimming in the river, playing with the other kids on the kopje. When his younger sister, Hazvinei, is born, Tinashe knows at once that there is something special about her. Their life in the village, once disturbed only by the occasional visits of his successful uncle and city cousin, Abel, now becomes entangled with the dual forces of the Shona spirit world and the political turmoil of the nation. As Tinashe, Hazvinei, and Abel grow older, their destinies entangle in ways they never expected. Tinashe is prepared to follow his sister anywhere—but how far can he go to keep her safe when the forces threatening her are so much darker and more sinister than he suspected? Andrea Eames weaves together folklore and suspense in this compelling tale of a boy struggling to do the right thing in an unpredictable world.

Review:

"Eames grew up in Zimbabwe and conveys a strong sense of political turmoil enflamed by sinister witch doctors, brutal guerilla factions and superstitious misogyny . . . compelling."  —Guardian

"A lovely writer. . . . This is a bolder and welcome move for Eames, writing outside of her own direct experience."  —Independent on Sunday
