Read in July, 2012

Set in Africa shortly after the 1st World War, this is a mystery novel that has a strong female lead and it is beautifully written. You feel as if you are in Africa, Ms. Arruda is so descriptive and realistically detailed. I very much enjoy mysteries especially those that challenge me though, somewhere around or before the half-way point in this novel I'd decided who done it. And through the rest of the novel was inwardly shouting 'Look out!" but still, I very much enjoyed this book. Because it is so well written by a clearly literate author -- refreshing in itself. I'm going to see if my library has more of Ms. Arruda's books.
