A StoryBook - 2008
Two Moons stretches your imagination and explores the spirit of Africa in a way that has remained unknown to the "White Man" since his landing in Africa. From the opening pages where the charge of a rhino leaves Mathew wounded, to a poisoned knife that strips the skin of Etona's youth during his initiation ceremony, leaving him fevered and dying while others try to lay claim to his fathers carved throne, Two Moons weaves an incredible tale. Carefully planned over decades; from an open marketplace in the heart of Nairobi to the privileged schools in London and Cape Town; illegal diamond smuggling and a small African Art Gallery in the heart of London, all become the coloured tapestry weaving a gripping story that ends under the ever watchful eye of Majura, the old medicine woman. Behind the veil of lives that are forever turning, the quiet smile of Ngai is ever present, sometimes only there to sprinkle the dreams of the dead in the starlit skies. Two Moons is a gripping read - of heroes and heroines and of the vanquished who are forever silent.
