Blood Lily PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Blood Lily free pdf Scott is facing bankruptcy amid the turmoil that grips the financial markets. He is saved when money is transferred to his account by Mlilo. We flash back to war-torn 1970s' Rhodesia where Scott is growing up as a privileged white boy alongside his best friend, Simba, a black boy on his parents' farm. Scott and Simba enjoy outstanding military careers in the Rhodesian Special Forces, yet Scott fails to recognise Simba's growing dissatisfaction with a country that discriminates against him. Years later, as Scott reconciles his present with the shadows of his past, he prepares to fight Simba in an Oxford - Cambridge boxing match. During the bout, Scott flashes back to the day of Simba's lethal betrayal. He gradually begins to understand his own naivety and in a confrontation with Simba realises that he has never truly known Simba: can't speak his language, was never really a friend and never even knew his real name - Mlilo. Returning home over the years, Scott witnesses the genocide in Matabeleland, the white-farm invasions by Mugabe's thugs and the ruin that is present-day Zimbabwe. But ultimately, it is a story of hope and regeneration - the racial divides of Scott and Mlilo as children no longer divide their own.
