A book about interracial relations in Black Africa, as perceived from a Western expat perspective.
Kenya in 1978 is an electrifying place for an 18-year-old. From wanton gyrations on the disco floor dreams of a freedom all her own after finishing school and finally leaving her parents’ house… Sara is elated by life!
When Sara falls wildly in love with Sam, she tweaks her plans. Their passion is perfect, but all too soon the outside world intrudes. Sam and Sara might be blind to the colour of their skins, but everybody else knows that black and white should never mix.
Sam confronts Sara’s father, who is horrified by his daughter’s choice of lover. He has other plans for his little girl. Sara is impressed by Sam’s resolve when he stands up to her father – but she is willing to -set aside her own belief in equality to become what Sam expects of his woman? Could she ever entertain the idea of a polygamous relationship?
Love is undeniable, but a future together in a
complicated world may not be quite as easy as Sam and Sara imagine
