Africa between the wars may make or break the Courtneys
Leon Courtney knows how quickly fortunes can be won and lost. Over two centuries, generations of his family have risen and fallen. After his beloved wife's death, the renowned big-game hunter raises his young daughter, Saffron, alone in colonial Kenya.
In the 1920s, Africa is a dangerous place. As Leon navigates the murky politics of this beautiful, wild land, Saffron grows into a headstrong young woman bound for Oxford.
Spies, traitors, and adventurers dog their every step as the fitful years of peace lead to World War II-involving Africa once more-as Leon and Saffron fight for their illustrious family's survival.
