Summary
"Set in Kenya against the fading backdrop of the British Empire, a story of self-discovery, betrayal, and an impossible love.

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.
