Thunder In The Distance Back Cover

The title of my new book comes from the “Belfast Revival”, a song by Robin Mark. It has the following verse;

I can hear the thunder in the distance
Like a train on the edge of town
I can feel the brooding of your spirit
Lay your burdens down

This is the text of the back cover;

Late nineteenth century Britain gave few breaks to those born poor and of low social standing.
So it was for Fynn Armstrong the youngest of six children born to croft farmers in the Scottish town of Perth on the River Tay. He elects to change his dismal life options and visits the local recruitment centre for the Black Watch Highland Regiment and signs up for duty in the Second Anglo Boer War.
It could result in his death, or it could be his ticket to a life of opportunity and adventure in Africa.
In the next five years Fynn Armstrong experiences the loneliness and danger of being a sniper in the Drakensberg Mountains, a hunter on a large cattle ranch in the Tuli Block of Bechuanaland, and facing-off against a powerful Ndebele chief in the Matopos Hills of Rhodesia.
A rite of passage.

The novel will be published in March 2023.
