Sinopse

The Rivers of Good Portent is a tale of Africa, based on a real event that occurred in 1608, when two sons of an Emperor were sent to the house of a Portuguese official to be brought up as Renaissance gentlemen. Their tale and that of the lost Mines of Chikova, one of Africas abiding mysteries, is set in a time of civil wars and commercial rivalry against the backdrop, of ancient cities, imperial fortresses and the mighty Zambezi Valley.In 1977 a British businessman is given some documents, which have been found in the mission at Baroma in Mozambique by an old friend. These tell in detail a story that is only partly known to history, a story of violence, politics, mysterious trade routes and lost mines, but at its centre is the struggle of these two boys to find their own identity. "...a delicious tale, deliciously told", Jayne Southern, Goodreads
