Monday, What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week, hosted by Sheila from Book Journey.  It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.


The Clouds Beneath the SunI'm reading The Clouds Beneath the Sun by Mackenzie Ford. Mackenzie Ford is the is the nom de plume of Peter Watson, a well-known and respected historian whose books are published in twenty languages. He wrote Gifts of War, which I loved.


Publisher's brief scoop -- An exotic setting and a passionate, forbidden affair make The Clouds Beneath the Sun an irresistible page-turner that is sure to satisfy readers looking for an intelligent blend of history, romance, and intrigue. great for a reading group pick!

The beginning lines.

Chapter 1

The Apology

The Kenya-Tanganyika border
September 1961

The Land Rover juddered to a halt. Natalie Nelson jolted her head on the side window and was shaken awake. "What's the matter, Mutevu? Why are you stopping? Watch out for that termite mound! Have we got a flat tire? What's wrong?"

Natalie was weary -- no, she was drained, exhausted, spent, and this delay was too much. She'd been traveling without sleep now for more than twenty-three hours, since she had left Cambridge sometime yesterday,  and she was anxious, longing, desperate, to reach Kihara camp.
