MWSA 2007 Silver Medal for Fiction, History
Compelling Novel that reads like Non-fiction! Former Rhodesia citizen and part-time soldier turned author Peter Davis brings his knowledge of that terrible period of war and rebellion into focus with his novel “Scatterlings of Africa”. It is a gripping suspense filled story with everything from war, and carnage to love and romance.
The writing is absolutely top notch. Davies captures the reader with a well-constructed plot, great characters and with just enough dialogs to add to the great narrative. The book is riveting and shows all the hatred and anger of that time and place. The book may not be politically correct at times but it fits well with what the author is trying to convey to his readers.
The book will keep you reading late into the night until you finish it. It is highly charged with lots of action but the issues about relationships and other personal things bring us a stronger and a more profound look at the people in his book. The story is easy to read physically but emotionally it may stay with you long after putting down this book.
A must read for those who love adventure and suspense novels.
