The best way to read a saga that's been on the shelf for a year. A read along. Reading this with Didi and the Read Soul lit group.
Three people's lives intersect in a story that begins at an area five miles above the Falls on the banks of the Zambezi River, where it's deepest and narrowest and easiest for 'drifting' a body across the other side that comes to be known as The Old Drift.
