Pounding with the vibrancy of African colour and music, occasionally sad, but always engaging, this is a story that captures the heart.It is 1956. Eight year old Melanie travels to Sierra Leone with her parents.Swiftly enthralled by the primeval power of this beautiful African country and its people, she soon discovers that intrigue and danger lurk beneath its apparently carefree exterior. Understanding with a childs innocence and intuition, Melanie learns of the similarities and links, but, above all, the bonds of friendship that exist between people of different races."This is a wonderfully evocative book, which contains such vivid descriptions of the sights, sounds and smells of Sierra Leone in the 1950s that you feel you are there. Seen through a childs eyes, the characters have a charm which is very engaging, although the puzzlement of a child trying to understand the dynamics of adult relationships is touched on. There is also a darkness lurking in the idyllic setting, which brings an air of menace. A very entertaining read, I wholeheartedly recommend this book." Readers Review
