The young photographer Tess is determined to follow her own path in life against her father’s wishes. Leaving her sheltered life in Germany behind, she travels to Africa on a photo shoot, finds love and is thrown into a turmoil of emotions when she is confronted with death. Events lead her from Kenya to Zimbabwe and the Dark Continent casts her spell … it is the majestic Zambezi which helps her to heal and grow, but that spell is relentless …
Kara Benson’s style stands out due to its lively, powerful, and evocative way of narration which is, at times, pointedly ironic.
Kara Benson lives in Africa and also in Australia. Home is where her laptop and horse are, apart from a few other things.
