Wings of the Morning is an adventure story of Africa spanning sixty years and three generations. Five university friends - the Oxford Five - become life-long friends, their lives moulded by drama and romance as they set off on different paths but reunite to pursue a shared ideal, to establish a new model country in West Africa - Millennium - in the dawn of the 21st century. A marvellous cast of characters includes the five key characters, their loves and families, whose fate is inextricably entwined; the experts and entrepreneurs who are essential for the enterprise; and the villains who do everything they can to derail 'Project Zero'. Steeped in intrigue and adventure, Julian Beale, with first-hand experience of Africa, has written a marvellous, fast flowing and exciting saga in the bestselling tradition of Wilbur Smith.
