About the Author: Barbara Keating

Barbara O'Hanlon and Stephanie Berke, sisters who embarked on a literary adventure together eight years ago, are now the successful authors of four novels, the most recent due for publication in September 2010.

The sisters' books have been translated into more than a dozen languages and are sold on all five continents.

Their seamless writing makes it impossible to tell where one finishes and another begins. They are widely appreciated for their richness of narrative and, in the 'Langani Trilogy', for their portrait of life in Kenya during the last throes of British rule and the emerging cultural dynamic of a newly independent country.

Barbara and Stephanie are now working on their fifth novel. 'Looking for Adrian' is the story of a sudden disappearance, and a search that begins in Hong Kong and takes the reader to the heart of a family's tragic secrets and their long-reaching consequences.

Kenya 1957. During their childhood years in the Kenya Highlands three girls from vastly different backgrounds becomes blood sisters, promising that nothing will ever destroy the bond between them. But the legacy of the Mau Mau rebellion and the tensions and upheavals of newly independent Kenya tear their childhood dreams apart. Separated by distance and by family obligation, the three young women are thrown into a larger world of conflicting interests. Camilla Broughton-Smith becomes a famous model in 1960s London. Sarah Mackay is sent to university in her native Ireland, an alien experience which only strengthens her resolve to return to Africa. Hannah van der Beer's family struggles to retain the farm established by her Afrikaans forebears at the turn of the century. Time and again their bond is almost destroyed. Their friendship becomes a backdrop for competing love and broken promises. Political unrest brings violence, and savage murder darkens their loves. Blood Sisters is the story of painful transition, from the innocent ideals of childhood to the demands of reality, amid the cataclysmic events of the African continent.
