"Pat and Mandy Retzlaff lived a hard but satisfying farming life in Zimbabwe. Working all hours of the day on their sprawling ranch and raising three boisterous children, they savored the beauty of the veld and the diverse wildlife that grazed the meadows outside their dining room window. After their children, the couple's true pride and joy were their horses. But in early 2001, the Retzlaffs' lives were thrown into turmoil when armed members of President Robert Mugabe's War Veterans' Association began invading the farmlands owned by white Zimbabweans and violently reclaiming the land"--Dust jacket flap.

This book received a lukewarm review in the Books section of The Globe and Mail newspaper on Saturday, October 26, 2013. "This is Retzlaff's first book and she does have a historic and dramatic tale to tell. ... Maybe no one told her how tricky writing a memoir is; this one is not what the author wishes it were - a grand inspiring tale."
