    DescriptionRainbow's End farm was a heavenly garden soaked in blood, or a fool's paradise, depending on how you looked at it." This searingly honest memoir describes growing up on an African farm during the "Rhodesian Bush War" and the twilight years of white colonialism in the 1970s. It also explores the shock, yet euphoria, of Zimbabwean independence in the 1980s as author Lauren St John navigates her way through the immense personal and political changes. The abundance and beauty of Africa and its people as well as childhood innocence are superbly contrasted with the insidiousness of racism, war and nationalist propaganda to create an unforgettable read--eloquent, affecting and utterly spellbinding.

    Review quote
    "St. John brings it all to life in a way that's engaging and leavened with Earle's down-home Texas humor even when the subject matter gets downright tragic."
