Land Without Echoes Summary

Land Without Echoes by John Hopkins

John Hopkins, drawing on his own experience in Tangier in the mid-20th century, has written a gripping fictional Moroccan Odyssey. If Antonio Adams had not taken complete charge of his step-daughter's education and upbringing, no one would have ever heard of Daisy Adams. By obliging her to perform hard physical labour outdoors with her brother Arturo during her childhood and adolescence, he made it possible for her to endure the rigours of the Spartan life she was to live later on. Daisy and Arturo were close in age. Home-educated, isolated on the ranch, they saw few young people. They did everything together - too many things. When Arturo returns to America and enlists in the army, he is almost immediately posted to Morocco and, fearing for the safety of her son, Mrs Adams decamps to Tangier with Daisy in tow. Land Without Echoes follows the intertwining lives of strong-willed Daisy and her Arturo against the backdrop of sweltering, thriving Morocco, through their many misadventures and yearning to meet once again.
