Publisher Description

As southern Africa is torn apart by a so-called 'white man's war', Dallas Granger-Acheson and his beloved wife Lorna are caught up in a conflict between fiercely proud descendants of Dutch settlers and the might of Britain's colonial empire. At stake, possession of a land rich in gold, diamonds and cheap human resources.

Atrocities of the Anglo-Boer war take a terrible toll on soldiers and civilians alike. Lorna fears for her husband and sons-extravert Cameron; brooding and secretive Torben; roguish Duncan and Frazer, the youngest, softly spoken and artistic. She worries to for her daughters-medically minded Ellie who is never far from the front line and headstrong Meggie, baby of the family. None are left untouched.

From battlefields stained with blood and concentration camps rife with disease to a pride of veld lions thriving in the madness of war, Footprints of Lion is an action-packed sequel to Shadows in the Grass. Love, hate, revenge, triumph and much more stalk the pages of this unforgettable new novel from Beverley Harper.

Africa History and Ficton

This is my second Beverley Harper book I've read, the first was quite by accident, when they compared this author's work to Wilbur Smith. To this end she is Australia's answer to Wilbur Smith, with both books providing enteraining reading as you follow the fortunes of familes within the harsh environment of the souther tip of Africa. Both books were based around Natal, Durban and the Orange Free State.

This book took us into the history of the war that plaged this area in the early 1900's. If you like a war based novel then this is a good read, but for me the first book (People of Heaven) which dealt more with the hardships of the times.

A good read and at times hard to put down, but if you want to start with a classic, People of Heaven, I would rate five stars.
