Hardcover (January 2017)
Set in Kenya in the 1950s against the fading backdrop of
the British Empire, a story of self-discovery, betrayal, and
an impossible love.
After six years in England, Rachel has returned to Kenya and
the farm where she spent her childhood, but the beloved home
she’d longed for is much changed. Her father’s new
companion—a strange, intolerant woman—has taken over the
household. The political climate in the country grows more
unsettled by the day and is approaching the boiling point.
And looming over them all is the threat of the Mau Mau, a
secret society intent on uniting the native Kenyans and
overthrowing the whites.
As Rachel struggles to find her place in her home and her
country, she initiates a covert relationship, one that will
demand from her a gross act of betrayal. One man knows her
secret, and he has made it clear how she can buy his
silence. But she knows something of her own, something she
has never told anyone. And her knowledge brings her power.
