Welcome to the new Cafe and Bookstore  New Series 2020 – Share an Extract with an opportunity to show one of your earlier books some love and attention by sharing an extract.. Check out the above link for all the details.

Today Ann Patras shares and extract from More Into Africa her 2nd book in her series about their time as a family living there.

About the book

Having completed their first chaotic year in Zambia in the early 1980s, the Patras family have grown to love the vagaries of Africa. Will they settle down to normality in that sunny and unhurried atmosphere?
