Out of Shadows
‘Out of Shadows‘ is a topical drama set in Zimbabwe in the years immediately after independence. It focuses on an English boy relocated to Zimbabwe and attending a prestigious boarding school after his idealistic diplomat father accepts a position at the British Embassy. He is catapulted into the racial turmoil and violence of the newly-formed Mugabe regime, while struggling to adapt to a new environment. ‘Out of Shadows‘ is a powerful, challenging book, very much for the older reader sector – 15-plus age.
