The Clouds Beneath the Sun by Mackenzie Ford Review

The Clouds Beneath the Sun: A Novel Romance, murder and archeology in the wonderful setting of an excavation in Kenya as well as beautiful descriptions and  well-developed characters.This book  is  wonderfully written by Mackenzie Ford, nom the plume of Peter Watson , a respected historian whose vast knowledge is clearly shown in the novel.

The plot may be considered slightly old-fashioned (in a good way most of the times) but it was certainly a welcome change for me after so many dystopian novels. However, I didn't expect the book to end the way it did ,and although it made complete sense I found it somewhat disappointing.

All in all The Clouds Beneath the Sun is really worth reading and it will take you back to 1961 , to the Serengeti, to learn about the Maasai people and the social upheaval before the independence in Kenya.
