From the Publisher"Ford has a talent for storytelling . . . One of 2010's best novels so far."
—San Antonio Express-News
"Set against the beautiful backdrop of the African desert, The Clouds Beneath the Sun skillfully blends historical facts, mystery and romance to create a novel that is both interesting and intellectual . . . Fast-paced and full of rich characters . . . a stimulating read."
—The Post and Courier (Charleston, SC)
"A fascinating, morally ambiguous novel that juxtaposes the ambitions of the scientific community of outsiders against the sensitivities of the native cultures whose riches they unearth. Cinematic descriptions of the land and its people imply an intimate knowledge of the African continent: readers will hear and smell the giraffe, antelope, leopards, and elephants that roam the plain . . . Highly recommended."
—Library Journal, Starred Review
"If you like your romance and intrigue with a dash of history and academia, this novel is the book for you!"
Praise for Gifts of War
“An absorbing, morally complex read.”
“Ford keeps the reader on a knife’s edge as the lies build and the truth is only a word or misstep away. Highly recommended.”
—Library Journal, starred review
“Ford combines the intrigue and tension of military intelligence with an affecting portrayal of a challenging love affair . . . [Gifts of War] succeeds on many levels.”
—Minneapolis Star Tribune
