Summary
Where?' someone yells, 'Where are we landing?' 'Africa. Somewhere.' A plane in trouble, a terrifying plummet into the depths of an African jungle, and capture by rebel military troopsall in just the first chapter of this brilliant debut novel by Marcus Stevens. Lewis' day begins with a bitter quarrel with his wife and ends on a crumbling, overgrown jungle airstrip somewhere deep in war-torn Congo. With the cockpit on fire, the pilots of his plane make an emergency landing and within hours the plane is seized by rebel troops. Lewis' flight into the rainforest saves him from one danger only to propel him into an even more terrifying place - a world without rules and no apparent way out. His desperate struggle to survive hunger, intense heat, and thirst forces Lewis to confront his deepest fears and greatest disappointments: his failing relationships with his wife and his blind seven-year-old son. When his wife makes a daring decision to search for him in Africa, The Curve of the World becomes a gripping, heartrending tale about regaining love and conviction
