Whispers of Love and Longing from Africa
'This slender yet unsentimental tribute to friendship and the devastation of loss before love has scarcely got into its stride could become an African classic. Natasha Illum Berg captures the essence of who Tonio was, without imprisoning him on a page. The dedication of Tea on the Blue Sofa speaks volumes to me, his mother.' Errol Trzebinski 'The bravest of the brave, the most generous of the generous. It takes real courage both to love as deeply and to write as well as Natasha Illum Berg. Her memoir of a love that died before it could be born already deserves to be called a classic.' Fiammetta Rocco, Economist 'Well written ... Painstakingly honest.' Daily Telegraph
Natasha Illum Berg was born in Sweden and now lives in Tanzania. She is the only female licensed hunter in East Africa. Her first book, Rivers of Red Earth, is about her life as a professional hunter.
