Helena Sebright couldn't resist an offer to accompany a child to Africa to see her grandparents. However, upon their arrival, she senses foreboding as the unrest of the Africans reaches the English ex-pats. Just as a coup is attempted, Helena's charge, Jean, disappears, and she must decide whom to trust among the few people she knows. Norma West keeps listeners enthralled as Helena takes it upon herself to search for the child. West skillfully recreates Ferrars’s multicultural story. Sympathetic to both sides, this 1968 novel presents an Africa quite different from today's. An excellent choice for its uniqueness and for mystery buffs who will enjoy its glorious African setting.
