About this product
- DescriptionFed up with predictable relationships; fed up with the predictability of everyday life, Abbey Harris in a moment of spontaneity (or according to her mother, madness!) turns her back on the leafy suburbs of Cheshire and hops on a Boeing 747 heading for Gaborone, Botswana. Abbey sets to work with a charity planting trees in the town of Kasane. It soon becomes very clear, however, that life will never be predictable again! Love, hate and prejudice exist side by side in the small, rural community, where at last, Abbey has to use her wits to survive. The Perils of Skinny Dipping is a heart-warming read that will transport you to the dusty, hot bushlands of rthern Botswana; its pleasures; its darkest secrets, and introduce you to a variety of characters who call it home.
- Author BiographyJulie Sandilands is originally from Cheshire where she lived until 1997. After completing her B.Ed. (Hons) in Business and Information Technology, she spent three years in Botswana teaching in a large, state secondary school in the capital Gaborone. The rich culture of this country and the colourful characters she lived and worked beside, inspired her to write 'The Perils of Skinny-dipping' set in Kasane, in the Chobe National Park. She relocated to Scotland in 2000 and has recently settled in the Eden valley. Other titles by the author include the Tale series of books - Finn's Tale, A Gypsy's Tale & A Tale of Tinkers, Trolls and Troublemakers. All three Tales are uplifting stories for both children and adults set in the wonderful countryside in the north of England from the 1960s onward.
