Into the Wild

Read War Cry (Courtney, #15) Online Free - The next gripping Courtney family adventure from perennial bestseller and fan favourite Wilbur Smith.

In a triumphant return to his much-loved Courtney series, Wilbur Smith introduces us to the bravest new member of the famed family, Saffron Courtney.

Saffron grows up on a sprawling Kenyan estate, under the watchful eye of her father, prominent businessman and distinguished war veteran Leon Courtney. Her childhood is idyllic, until a family tragedy forces her to grow up much faster than necessary. As she grows into a spirited teenager, her thirst for knowledge and adventures leads her to England, where she finds herself inevitably drawn into the heart of the gathering storm in the lead-up to World War II.

Gerhard von Meerbach is the privileged and idealistic younger brother of Konrad von Meerbach, heir to an industrial fortune, and vocal supporter of the Nazi Party. Gerhard struggles to stay true to his principles in an increasingly cruel world. His friendship with a Jewish man places him in danger, and forces him to take a stand against the forces of evil that have overtaken his country and his family. But, unknown to him, he is caught in a trap that could cost him everything he holds dear.

As the Second World War looms over them all, Saffron and Gerhard's worlds collide – but will there be more to unite them than tear them apart?

A love story in the time of heroes, War Cry is the latest breathtaking episode in Wilbur Smith's epic account of one beloved family.

Well I have finished reading "War cry" and all I can say is "Wow! The master seems to be back!". I found it much better written than his previous recent books. I get the feeling he had much more of a hand in writting the story and adding the final Wilbur touches like only he can. The story itself...

I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway and was pleased to discover a new author. Much of this book is set in Kenya on the eve of the second world war and this unfamiliar background added greatly to my enjoyment. I will certainly look out for other books in the series.

This book is the nail in the coffin - Wilbur Smith needs to retire. Having read a few Courtney novels, I found this book to be a complete let down.

First, I must mention that I won this novel in GoodReads giveaways in exchange for an honest review. I had not read any of Wilbur Smith's earlier novels.

I received this book as a giveaway and had not read any previous books in the series. It was a very engaging read as I have always enjoyed historical fiction.

After a long time, Wilbur Smith seems to be back in his elements. The towering allure of African life and its landscapes, the trails and tribulations of the Masai and Courtneys all come to life once again... Though in the middle it stretches a bit and takes on some frivolous undertones, it does c...
