Description - A Durable Fire by Barbara Keating

In the first years of Kenyan independence, three young women return to the East African highlands where they shared a carefree childhood. Hannah is struggling to preserve her heritage at Langani Farm, where a series of unexplained and violent attacks threaten her security and recent marriage. Sarah is studying elephant behaviour in an area made dangerous by armed poachers, using her work as a salve for the death of her childhood sweetheart. Camilla, the international fashion icon, abandons her career in London, drawn back to Kenya by her love for a charismatic hunter and safari guide. But there is a secret that hangs over Langani, overshadowing their efforts to establish themselves in the volatile circumstances of a new African nation. With the help of an ambitious Indian journalist, the three girls gradually uncover the truth about the murder of Sarah's fiance, and the continuing attacks on the farm and on their lives. The passions and hardships experienced by these unforgettable heroines, united again in their friendship and their love for the country of their childhood, make a magnificent, epic novel.
