Enraged screams filled his head. Deadly shapes bore down. Animal and man driven by one single thought. Kill or be killed. Neither wanted to die. Falsely accused of a terrible crime, impetuous young aristocrat Lord Dallas Acheson is forced to flee his native Scotland, leaving behind the only woman he has ever loved - Lady Lorna de Iongh. From that day onwards, he must learn to live a different life in a land where danger is an ever-present partner. Fate takes him to southern Africa and the emerging seaport of Durban, from where he sets off to trade and hunt, seeking his fortune in the little-travelled midlands of Natal and the wilds of Zululand. Tested to the limit, Dallas discovers more than he could have imagined. Married to a woman he doesn't love, he yearns to abandon the restraints of nineteenth-century society to be with Lorna. And when the Zulu war breaks out, he finds himself torn between old and new loyalties, required to be an enemy of the land that is now his true home. Beverley Harper was born in Bulli on the New South Wales south coast. In 1967 she travelled to Africa, intending to spend one year. She stayed twenty, returning to settle in Australia in 1988. Despite loving the northern tablelands where she lived, the memories of Africa provided the inspiration for her best-selling novels and she went back to that continent for research purposes once a year. Married to Robert, they had three grown-up sons. Shadows in the Grass was Beverley's seventh novel. Beverley Harper died in August 2002.
