In The Shade of The Mountain

By M K Jacobs - ISBN: 9781922701619

RRP: $36.95

Set in Crete, 1941, In the Shade of the Mountain is an emotionally complex story. 

As the youngest son growing up on a vast South Australian sheep station, Andrew Mitchell earns his living by being a gambler, fighter and a conman. He certainly knows that the fastest way to make money is to tell people what they want to hear. He was often so good at it that he made a living from it until Andrew enlists for a war spread over three fronts. His own personal battles, his confronting creditors and Elizabeth, the one woman he cannot extricate from his soul. His goal is desertion; to run and join the local Greek resistance movement and vanish from the war without remorse, only there is one small problem … the new price on his head. A desire to survive and the desire to get home to his love will drive Andrew to all ends of his convictions in this intelligent work by new Australian author M.K. Jacobs.

“A delving and immersing experience by a talented new author who knows her geography and her characters without fault. Wonderful and thoroughly recommended…” Tabitha, Indie Book reviewer
