This is the third novel in the Malcolm Craig series. Because of tax problems with the United Kingdom Inland Revenue, famous tenor, Malcolm Craig and his wife, soprano, Marina Dunbar decide to emigrate to South Africa in 1956. This novel covers the first seven years of their new lives in South Africa. Although they are still performing they find that they have to teach singing to make ends meet. Their marriage is still as tempestuous as ever and they are on the brink of divorcing one another. Marina has an affair with a popular radio announcer and Malcolm feels genuinely drawn to his young studio accompanist, Kate Kyle. Kate, in turn, thinks the world of Malcolm despite a huge difference in their ages. In all honesty, this book and the following one (yet to be published) can only be described as novels about real life, overlaid with a façade of fiction. Much of the plot is based on my diaries from the 1960s.
