Patricia  Mennen - Longing for Owitambe


A gripping family saga set against the breath-taking backcloth of Namibia

It is German Southwest Africa shortly before the outbreak of World War I. Jella von Sonthofen has found her father and Fritz, the man of her life. When she gives birth to a daughter, her happiness seems to be complete. Before long, the family is torn apart in the maelstrom of events surrounding the Herero uprising and the bloody conflicts for the German colony, and so Jella and Fritz decide to go to India with their daughter. It is ten years before they are able to return to the true home of their hearts.

For readers of Sarah Lark, Barbara Wood and Elizabeth Haran.
