THE KINGDOM OF EMPTINESS by Tom Gamble
Fox, a British soldier, returns from Afghanistan to witness his life disintegrate in the harsh realities of civilian life and his inner struggle for forgiveness.
In the Mauritanian desert, Badia an outcast, struggles to raise her son as one by
one her hopes for a better future are dashed.
The Kingdom is the story of Fox and Badia and their circle of friends – seven lives and seven challenges thrown together in a Saharan Mauritania steeped in the growing violence of Al-Qaeda and the secret counter-terrorism operations of the French military. Lives that meet in hope, hatred, love and redemption.
