Rosa (rosaiglarsh) | 4985 comments No, you did it right. I haven't read The River, but I've seen the Pierre Renoir movie, and it's about an English family in India, narrated by the daughter, who's based on the author. Her little brother plays with snakes, she doesn't tell anyone, and one day he's bitten and he dies. I'm sorry, I know yours is in Africa, but I just thought I'd suggest it.

Aerulan | 1190 comments Do you have any sense of when it took place or the time when it was written?
Something recent/contemporary or more in the past?

ETA if you haven't tried it already this list might be worth looking through

Eileen Eddings | 4 comments I read the book in the 90’s. Feel like it was set in 70’s or 80’s
