BREATH OF AFRICA, dedicated to the people of Kenya, is a novel by Jane Bwye, retired businesswoman and intermittent freelance journalist who lived over half a century in Africa.
The 2013 Kenya elections took place without much-feared violence and reprisals, and the country moves on in hope.
This hope is epitomised in the book, which means different things to different people; it can be read as
- a love story,
- a psychological thriller,
- or more deeply as an exploration into the interactions of people of different races.
- Superstition and Christian faith clash.
- And the stunning beauty of the country is a major character in itself.
It traces the stories of Caroline, a privileged woman from the highlands, and Charles Ondiek, a farm labourer with dreams of Oxford. A drama of psychological terror is fuelled by Mau Mau oath administrator, Mwangi, but against the backdrop of Kenya’s beautiful but hostile desert, the curse is finally broken.
The book is available in KINDLE and PAPERBACK format from Amazon.
