Shirley Carnegie: Sons of Africa

Zimbabwe 1980. The war of independence is over, but ancient conflicts between the two main tribes - Robert Mugabe's Shona in the north and Joshua Nkomo's Matabele in the south - are still simmering. Soon, they will spill over into a civil war where blacks will fight blacks, and white families caught in the crossfire will die.

Twin brothers, Greg and Clay Buckley, are locked in a war of their own to win the love of their childhood friend, Tara Flynn. Their sibling rivalry ends in a vicious fight that will have a devastating impact on their lives and the lives of everyone around them.

In northern Zimbabwe, Mugabe's North Korean trained armies are poised to carry out the systematic destruction of the Matabele nation. The Buckleys' farm stands in their way. Already weakened by the rift between the brothers, there is little left to protect the land and its people from the advancing hordes. The blood of black and white Africans is about to stain the rich red earth of Zimbabwe once more. And things will never be the same again.

Caught in the crossfire between black and white Africans, Miles, the son of a white farmer, and Julius, the son of a black farm worker, experience a suffering so great it will destroy their pact of blood brotherhood and settle the burden of hatred upon them as they grow into men.

As the fledgling Zimbabwe struggles to emerge from the ashes of war, the enmity between Miles and Julius rages on. Each man is motivated by one goal in life: to destroy the other.

The old war between black and white Africa is over, but a new one has just begun.

Shirley Carnegie: A Wedding in Africa

Cape Town journalist, Lacey Van der Zyl, is keen to escape from her domineering father and Mortimer, the man she has agreed to marry. So the prospect of interviewing a wealthy landowner, Tate Maddox, at his beautiful estate near the Kruger National Park is a perfect opportunity to escape from her unhappy life.

But Tate Maddox is a man with a past and demons of his own to deal with. It's clear that he's not keen to share his world with a beautiful, frivolous socialite – even if she is the daughter of South Africa's most influential celebrity magazine editor. Even so, if he wants his new luxury tourist lodges to be successful, he knows he has no choice other than to accommodate this unwelcome intrusion into his life.

With a ruggedly handsome man as her host, and Tate's magnificent home at her disposal, Lacey knows she should be happy. But bitter memories from her past, and Tate's dark, brooding presence, cast shadows over the African sun.

The secrets that each one carries are so great, so burdensome, that they have formed an invisible wall between them: one that only the truth can ever hope to destroy.
