Overview

When journalist Mike and his wife Sara decide to foster a 12-year-old Bosnian refugee, they have no premonition of the far-reaching consequences. Jasminka evolves from a traumatised child of the bitter ethnic conflicts of besieged Sarajevo into Minkie, an English schoolgirl-with-a-difference in a village in Middle England. She also becomes the daughter Mike has always wanted and Sara cannot have, and one of the excuses for Sara to resume an old affair. Mike’s assignments continue to take him to Bosnia and Serbia and he finds himself emotionally drawn into the conflict for reasons he could never have imagined and which have a profound effect on the deepening rift at home. As shifting international tensions are about to change the world forever, Minkie returns to Sarajevo to seek her roots and decide her future, just as Mike and Sara must decide on theirs in these early days of September 2001.

Meet the Author

After a working lifetime as a travel writer, in advancing years I have returned to my first love, fiction. For the most part it has been in the form of short stories until in 2005 I self-published the first book in a trilogy on what war does to people, especially the children and grandchildren of paprticipants. The first, 'Another Kind of Loving' is largely about the break-up of former Yugoslavia which I know well. The second, 'Beyond the Broken Gate' picks up the thread post 9/11 and has echoes of both the first and second World Wars. The third, 'Long Shadows' ties up all the loose ends of relationships formed in the first two. I am now working on new ideas, including a possible anthology of short stories.

    Awesome book!

    Fictional & yet I felt like I was reading about real people. The characters were so believable, the emotions so strong. The author explores what happens to the survivors of war, the foibles of ordinary people, & the indomitable spirit of people to overcome even the most horrendous adversity, especially when guided by an underlying love. It's not maudlin, not sappy, & in many ways unexpected.
