About the Author

I'm an author from Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. I've written a novel, Silk Threads and a few short stories. Although Frankie is a pen name, she is the me who never grew up, the crazy kid who spoke to animals, talked to the wildflowers and asked awkward questions...I love: music, the silence..., distant horizons. I hate: crowds and spending money.

I enjoyed reading this book. Kay presents a simple but riveting romantic and investigative plot. Her character development is excellent, particularly with four of the main characters (Lisa, Henrietta, Eugene and David). I personally loved the character David, but Eugene is really a masterpiece. The sexuality in this piece is particularly liberal, and may disturb some readers, but it is an essential element  of the story. The investigative part of the plot is carefully thought out, and I was happy to pick out clues as I went. Doing this made me thoroughly enjoy a particular chapter. It is set up in a wildlife orphanage and encapsulates the book plot and theme in a powerful metaphor. It’s probably one of the best chapters I’ve ever read in any novel. Overall, it’s a very good book that I recommend to any romance fan. There is a little something for mystery fans too.  There are also great snippets of life in Rhodesia/Zimbabwe and South Africa for all those who may be interested.
