My thoughts:
I picked this up for release purposes.

From the publisher:
Historic romance and adventure do not get any better than in this companion novel to the top-selling A Café on the Nile. The Great War has ended, tragically for many, but for some, Africa holds the prospect of vast estates, fabulous wealth, and limitless opportunity in this powerful, wonderfully crafted novel of the natural and human perils that await pioneers in a promised land. In colonial Kenya the paths of these new settlers cross at Lord Penfold's White Rhino Hotel. Here they meet the cunning dwarf Olivio Alevado, a man whose lustful desires and vengeful schemes make him a formidable adversary to his enemies and a subtle ally to his friends. Here the destinies of the gypsy adventurer Anton Rider and courageous, war-hardened Gwen Llewelyn intersect. Here hope is corrupted by greed, love by revenge, and loyalty by betrayal as the future is trampled into history.

Found this book in the NZ convention m-bag that arrived here in Dunedin a couple of weeks ago (sorry about the delay in journaling them). Thanks so much for sending the book Polliwog, and thanks also Antof9, your contribution to our convention is greatly appreciated.
This looks like the kind of book the Boreal husband would like :-)

Left at the Backpackers. Haven't read it, but it did look like a good read and was quite well written.
