ADMISSION:> Adam Broadford, a white child foretold eventually to write of all he witnesses by an ancient Sangoma, grows up under the wise influence of an old Matabele mentor in the cauldron of Colonial Africa's Zambia. Torn between the clashing cultures of his Afrikaans step-parents and his English heritage, he eventually is conscripted into the South African Army where he is forced to make the ultimate choice before he can write his story; escape the country and give up the one person he would always love, or stay and forever dispute the consequences of his unusual destiny. See synopsis
TRANSITION:> Adam is continually faced with intriguing and adventurous choices in his quest for freedom that lead him to be a refugee as he cycles up the length of Britain, pursued by Home Office, and by others, yet driven by the demands of his destiny. Eventually, in the Orkney Islands, he comes to make his escape to Canada, only to discover that the reaches of his past continue to make unusual demands before he can fulfill the mandate of the old prophecy: Write, write about it all ! It is a quest not so much for freedom that enlivens his story, as it is for insight and wisdom. Every reader will be enthralled!
