3.8/5 Goodreads

Avoiding the chaos of the First World War, Piet Barol leaves the bustle of civilization and heads into Africa’s greatest forest. With a business to build and secrets to escape, his only weapons are courage and intuition. His African guides have their own reasons for taking him to their ancestral lands. What he finds there changes him forever, and unleashes a chain of events he can neither predict nor control…
This “gorgeous treat of a novel” (The Times, Book of the Month) is a funny, sexy, irreverent, and intensely moving portrait of what unites human beings when their sacred mysteries are blown apart.

"A seemingly playful lie spirals into an explosion of greed, lust and ruthless ambition" - Mail on Sunday, Books of the Year
"A poignant, riveting tale...dastardly, sensuous, mysterious" - Sunday Times
"Luminously reminiscent of Chinua Achebe's Things Fall Apart and the disastrous culture clash of Barbara Kingsolver's Poisonwood Bible" - Booklist Starred Review
