Description: It is 1972 and James and Katrina Martin set off for a well earned month of leave from Zambia to South Africa and England. They return and James is offered an opportunity to start a new copper mine at Mtuga away from the Zambian Copperbelt. They travel to the Mtuga area which is located just off the Great North Road. The mine is situated on old workings from the 1920's and is being re-opened as a surface mine. The Mkushi District, in which it is located, is better known for its maize and tobacco farms and in the late 1970's for the camps of the Zimbabwe People's Revolutionary Army (ZIPRA), an organization that they will encounter a few times.

Life is complicated when the Rhodesians close the border with Zambia and Zambia retaliates, potentially stranding all their new mining equipment outside the country. They must formulate a plan to get everything to the mine and the operation started on time and within budget.

Although now married for almost three years, James and Katrina continue to discover one another and their romance and desire for one another is as strong as ever. They take every opportunity they can to be away and alone together in the more remote parts of Zambia.
