Book: Amie - An African Adventure by Lucinda E Clarke

Lucinda E Clarkeabout this book: Amie is partly based on my own experiences of moving from the United Kingdom to go and live in Africa. It was a real culture shock, and I hope, through Amie's eyes you too will be taken to a new and unfamiliar environment.
Africa is a volatile continent, and often things don't stay quiet for long, as Amie was soon to discover. She gets involved with a government agency and blackmailed into making propaganda videos for them.
Just as she gets to cope, things go from bad to worse as civil war breaks out and she is caught in the middle of it.
A fast moving, action packed adventure story that has reached #1 in all three categories on Amazon.co.uk and labelled as a best seller.
I wrote Amie in three months, inspired by the challenge of writing a fiction novel and the hardest part was the editing. Having worked for years writing for radio and television, this is a new discipline for me but I loved every moment of writing, editing and publishing.
I was also keen to introduce readers to the REAL Africa and maybe put right a few of the misconceptions people have about life there. It's a place I love and which I really miss.
Reviews for Amie an African Adventure:-
"Amie" is startlingly good! It starts well and gets better and better; I started reading it in patches last thing at night, and on the fourth night I couldn't stop till I'd finished - at 05.45 am! Having been born and brought up and lived in various countries over central and southern Africa through most of my life, what struck me hardest was that the author pulls absolutely no punches.
This book has the WOW factor. I'd recommend it to everyone, regardless of preferred genre. One quick look at the author's profile says this book has been written by an extraordinary woman. Only a talented writer who had lived and breathed what she was writing about could achieve this. Believable characters, fantastic settings and an outstanding story. This is a very special book which should find its way onto everyone's book shelf.
If you want to read about Africa, I mean the REAL Africa, then this is the book for you. The depth of emotion in this writing is such that it could have been a memoir, though thank goodness it wasn't, given the turn of events as you read on.
