Publisher Description

An impossible dream ... and a love to defy the odds.
In 1897 Ronald Preston attempts the seemingly impossible - building a railway line from exotic Mombasa, on the east coast of Africa, to Lake Victoria, deep in the continent's wild and dark heart. His new bride, Florence, insists upon joining him. Yet ahead lie hostile tribes, dense jungles, floods, drought, man-eating lions, political intrigue, disease ... and somewhere within their crew stalks a silent menace. Ronald and Florence defy the odds and the conventions of their time to accomplish what the world said could not be done. Based on a true story, BEYOND MOMBASA takes the reader on a heart-stopping adventure across Africa - a land where man is pitted against not only nature, but against himself ...
