With the Portuguese terrorist group "Frelimo" getting in on the act and joining forces with ZANU, Kensington's own territorial infantry battalion, four Rhodesian Rifles, is re-deployed on the eastern Mozambique border. Iffor Meredith, now in command of the operations centre with a small support team, is glad to back in the war, leaving behind his daily complicated life as a farmer, and father to twins. His uncomplicated existence is about to be complicated by the arrival of the new casualty evacuation doctor, Grace, the Xhosa speaking Zulu, and a former lover. After a brief two night affair at the military hospital in Bindura, their paths go in different directions, until a failed mission in Zambia brings them together in dramatic circumstances.
Grace is the third book in the Blue Watch trilogy, the others being Blue Watch and Alice. Each book showing the bloody civil war in Rhodesia from a different perspective.

Adrenaline junky, former paratrooper, contract soldier, professional diver, Gwyn Fford-Osborne is now living, singing (professional tenor), drinking and writing in darkest Oxfordshire.
In 1954 Gwyn joined the Royal Electrical Mechanical Engineers and qualified as an armourer. Having been posted to an infantry battalion, he served in Germany, Cyprus, and North Africa, which culminated in him being injured during the Suez operation. After recovering, he volunteered for the Airborne Forces and was posted to the Parachute Engineer Regiment (TA) following parachute training. Following this, Gwyn contracted to the Northern Rhodesian army, which then became the Zambian Army, serving with the infantry.
