Meet the Author

Between Two Rivers_Cover_edited.jpg

I'm currently visiting Lusaka and I'd like to meet book lovers and people I might have known when I lived here. My name was Tina Bell.


If you're around on Tuesday, 13th September, why not pop in to Mila (the old Mugg and Bean Café) in East Park Mall and say hello? I'll be there from 12 noon to 3.00 pm.


I'll be selling signed copies of Between Two Rivers (Weaver Press, Harare, 2022), for the discounted price of K350 (usual price K390). I'm donating K150 from every sale to Game Rangers International for their "Sponsor a School" scheme. 

Looking forward to meeting you if you can make it!



The author inhabits characters across the barriers of race, class, gender and religion as they interact with each other. ... Beattie explores our humanity in its beauty and brokenness through women’s voices. Fictional voices of the marginalised have been inserted in the recorded history of the country, not to create an alternative history but to add to its rich, multi-faceted texture.

Chiedza Musengezi, Zimbabwean author: read the full review here

A compelling and captivating read. The story is a fascinating weave of black and white characters. I loved it despite scenes that deeply disturbed me, having been through those times. Tina Beattie has captured an essence of the time with precise and knowledgeable detail.

Angus Shaw, Zimbabwean writer and war correspondent

Tina Beattie is a gifted writer with the ability to paint a vivid and lasting picture with her words. She has made a significant and important contribution to the recreation of the story of the last days of Rhodesia. It is an excellent and gripping read.

Pat Brickhill, Reviewer for Weaver Press, Zimbabwe: read the full review here

Rhodesia is sleep-walking towards its devastating civil war. Three women become entangled in that war and in relationships that harbour the seeds of tragedy. With great sensitivity and insight, Tina Beattie tells a haunting story of love and war that will long linger in the mind. 

Kay Powell, author of Then a Wind Blew
