    1. My new boyfriend at the time recommended the book, I was more than apprehensive! Dark haired man on the cover carrying a flailing girl - definitely NOT my type of literature! My snobbish opinion. But I did read the book, and married the boyfriend. Awesome rendition of life in old Rhodesia. Capturing the charm of our lives in Africa to the t. While at the same time giving a brilliant rendition of the history - how it unfolded and why we were so oblivious.I still long for those Sundays

    2. ive read this book three times!!!!!!!really interesting , romantic one,,, :)its full of love, sacrifice , war, leaving and coming back againgi wish one day to see the movie . im sure it would amasing, wonderful. as the novle itself. :)No One Can LIVE Without Love

    3. I found this book on a fence while walking to Bondi Beach. I liked it - being about a time and place that I know nothing about, it was both vivid and very passionately written. Unfortunately as the book progressed, I found myself increasingly wanting to wallop the two lovers with a large trout.

And maybe I've read too much Tom Clancy and Wilbur Smith to understand a book that's about nothing at all. Seriously what was this book about? I watched the movie as a child and enjoyed it quite a bit, at least something happened in that version of this story. From as near as I could tell, all this book was was a white author bemoaning the disappearance of a white dominated Afr [...]

    5. Absolutely enjoyed reading this book. Loved the way the story unfolds, the detail pre-independence and what Rhodesia went through just before independence. A great way to learn about history. The love story is amazing too, although the end is not a happy one

    6. loved this book. I read this while in Zambia & it definitely helped me relate to what people had been through.

    7. I read this book whilst I was living in South Africa. between 1970 and 1972 and also spent two months in Rhodesia. Loved the book and have decided soon I will read it again.
