“Two stories set in Africa a century apart create a beautiful depiction of the fragility and delicacy of life. Jeremy, a railroad engineer at the turn of the 20th century, and Max, a botanist entering the 21st, contend not only with their personal demons but also with the environment and wildlife that threaten to overwhelm their world. This is compelling writing that shows the constant tension between humans and nature and how the balance is swayed by the slightest of factors.”
-- Bill Cusumano, Nicola's Books, Ann Arbor, MI
The acclaimed author of "The Cage" returns with a tale that takes place in East Africa over the course of two time periods--the years 1899 and 2000--and follows two Americans who must find the strength to overcome perilous threats.
