Song of the Wind
By Madge Swindells
A heart turned to stone; a burning for revenge.
When her mother is shot at the close of World War II, Marika Magos is orphaned into a new life in the diamond canyons of South Africa.
As a worn-torn Europe is on the mend, Marika climbs to the glittering heights of the London fashion industry. From Paris to New York, her name is known and her admirers many.
Not even Tony Palma, the international tycoon who thought he possessed her entirely knows of the secret passion she harbours for Swiss immigrant Gunter Grieff. Yet the sweet promise of their affair turns to ashes when Marika learns that his name and papers are false, changed in the final days of the war to protect his German identity.
Song of the Wind tells a powerful tale of romance, adventure and intrigue.
