The long awaited final in the Langani trilogy (Blood Sisters and A Durable Fire) finally arrives. Ten years after independence, the enduring childhood friendship of three women has carried them through times of violence and loss in Kenya, their chosen homeland. Hannah Olsen and her husband Lars own Langani Farm and Safari Lodge where they struggle to protect their wildlife and land from poachers and corrupt officials. But the developing relationship between their daughter and a young African boy with a terrible legacy tests the strength of their family. Sarah Singh, wildlife researcher and renowned photographer, is married to an Indian journalist. However, their inability to have children puts Sarah's relationship with her husband and his family under increasing pressure. Camilla Broughton Smith, international model and fashion designer, has given up a dazzling career to work with the charismatic safari guide Anthony Chapman, who has been disabled in a tragic accident. Yet his bitterness and fear of commitment threaten to shatter her dreams. Set in the magnificent but unpredictable wilds of Kenya, In Borrowed Light, the final part of the Langani Trilogy, is a story of courage and fortitude, of loyalty and murderous deceit, of friendship and betrayal and redeeming sacrifice.

Review: In Borrowed Light (The Langani Trilogy #3)

User Review  - Shayne - Goodreads

Absolutely loved the final book in the Langani Trilogy. It all just came together so well and I was so sad it was over. If you're looking for a trilogy to sink your teeth into this is it. Loved that it was set in Africa and could just picture what she was writing about. Read full review

Review: In Borrowed Light (The Langani Trilogy #3)

User Review  - Sophie Ngugi - Goodreads

The book gave a great insight into the lives of non-black Kenyans, born and bred in Kenya as what they call home yet 'mzungu'/ white' in eyes of Kenyans. It portrayed real life struggles of love...loving the 'wrong' persons, betrayals, marriages breaking and making; very real!! Read full review
