Drumbeats (Drumbeats Trilogy Book 1)

£2.99

It's 1965 and 18 year old Jess escapes her stifling English background for a gap year in Ghana, West Africa.

But it's a time of political turbulence across the region. Fighting to keep her young love who waits back in England, she's thrown into the physical dangers of civil war, tragedy, and the emotional conflict of a disturbing new relationship. And why do the drumbeats haunt her dreams?

Drumbeats is a rite of passage story which takes the reader hand in hand with Jess on her journey towards growing into the adult world.
