If you’re looking for a great book to read this summer here’s one you should add to your list.
Below is the review I wrote for Amazon.com
Last night I dreamed of a far away land. A land with a sun like a “giant ball of orange fire” and a sky like a “deep blue bowl filled with magical, milky fairy dust”. So enthralled was I with Davis’ novel that I dreamt that night of the beautiful but desperate land of orphan Adanna. It continues to follow me a week later. Davis weaves a fascinating, yet hauntingly real, story of Adanna and Stuart, giving us a unique perspective into the life of the people of Swaziland.
As Stuart is challenged to examine his view of the world, so is the reader as they dive deep into Adanna’s story.
Davis’ personal passion for orphans and Africa is evident. As a fan of his non-fiction books (“Fields of the Fatherless” and “Red Letters”) I eagerly anticipated his first fiction work. “Scared” did NOT disappoint and will be a book I read again and again.
