Reviews

'St John's descriptions of southern Africa provide a sumptuous backdrop... top-drawer adventure storytelling, with an added helping of fantasy thrown in. It all makes for a genuinely gripping tale that will warm even the coldest of hearts.' Joe Melia, Waterstone's

'enthralling... we may not all have a white giraffe to make life easier, but his book remainds us that even the most miserable situation can get better.' John Millen
