Carter and Brenda want explanations for the craziness in their lives. Will they find them?
Mr. Maynard continues to surprise his readers with the unique way he approaches the spirit world. Very well written and plotted. Characters you'll love and just enough twists to keep you off balance. Refreshing and brilliant, you will be unable to put this book down. It taps your heart and soul from page one. This is the third book in the trilogy. I found it just as enthralling as the first two books. Read this one or the other two alone or as part of the trilogy, you'll want to buy copies for friends. Perfect for a book club read too.
I didn't find issues.
I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because of its outstanding story line.
As a novelist, I am obsessed by vivid colours, lush landscapes and tales of exotic customs in far-off lands. I can trace much of this back to a dear and long-departed friend of my family Mr Chiumbo Wangai, who fascinated me as a teenager with stories of the witch-doctors and magical ceremonies in his native Kenya. When I visited the country myself, I soon fell in love with its beautiful countryside and unforgettable sunsets.
Though I have been telling stories since I was a child, it was only after my children had grown up and my husband and I had turned our family business into a success that I felt I could devote myself to writing full time. After I dug out the various ideas and sketches I had jotted down over the years, I realised how profoundly my travels throughout Europe, the Mediterranean and particularly Africa had burned themselves into my memory. I felt driven to turn them into a novel.
The mystery, magic, heat and passion of Kenya’s landscapes inspired me to use them as the setting for my first novel. Burning Embers, a passionate love story set against the backdrop of the country in 1970. My later travels through Europe provided rich fodder for more stories, including my novels The Echoes of Love, set in Venice and Tuscany, Italy; and Indiscretion and Masquerade, set in the smouldering heat of Andalucía, Spain.
