Read full description of the books A Durable Fire:In the first years of Kenyan independence, three young women return to the East African highlands where they shared a carefree childhood. Hannah is struggling to preserve her heritage at Langani Farm, where a series of unexplained and violent attacks threaten her security and recent marriage. Sarah is studying elephant behavior in an area made dangerous by armed poachers, using her work as a salve for the death of her childhood sweetheart. Camilla, the international fashion icon, abandons her career in London and is drawn back to Kenya by her love for a charismatic hunter and safari guide. But there is a secret that hangs over Langani, overshadowing their efforts to establish themselves in the volatile circumstances of a new African nation. With the help of an ambitious Indian journalist, the three girls gradually uncover the truth about the murder of Sarah's fiance, and the continuing attacks on the farm and on their lives. The passions and hardships experienced by these unforgettable heroines, united again in their friendship and their love for the country of their childhood, make a magnificent, epic novel. This superb sequel to Blood Sisters confronts catastrophic loss and delirious happiness, savagery and degradation, limitless beauty, soaring hope, and redemption.
Read information about the authorBarbara O'Hanlon and Stephanie Berke, sisters who embarked on a literary adventure together eight years ago, are now the successful authors of four novels, the most recent due for publication in September 2010.
The sisters' books have been translated into more than a dozen languages and are sold on all five continents.
Their seamless writing makes it impossible to tell where one finishes and another begins. They are widely appreciated for their richness of narrative and, in the 'Langani Trilogy', for their portrait of life in Kenya during the last throes of British rule and the emerging cultural dynamic of a newly independent country.
Barbara and Stephanie are now working on their fifth novel. 'Looking for Adrian' is the story of a sudden disappearance, and a search that begins in Hong Kong and takes the reader to the heart of a family's tragic secrets and their long-reaching consequences.
