Synopsis

Cooksie's Cake by Jane Flowers

Jane Flowers was a child growing up in Africa. She was one of thousands of children, who had never known any other life than one of political turmoil and war. Rhodesia, later to become Zimbabwe, is nestled in the vast and beautiful wilderness of Central Africa. The politics of the country in the aftermath of UDI declared by Ian Smith led to a civil war that destroyed many lives in this African country. It led to the rise to power of the now infamous Robert Mugabe . This is her story. Simple, charming, full of a childish wonder at nature's bounty. Cooksie's life was not all trauma and tragedy. There are a few belly-laughs awaiting the reader. Come, take a walk through the unique childhood of Cooksie.
