A novel based on a teleplay by Lionel Chetwynd and David Smith. Avon Books.
From the privileged world of Post WWII debutante balls and posh Connecticut parties, Allison Stewart follows her young husband and his dream into the magnificent sun-fired land of Africa, where his work, chasing poachers, hunting animals, forces him to leave her alone. As the dreaded word Mau-Mau sweeps through Nairobi’s streets and Kenya is torn by blood and ideals, Allie’s personal life explodes in a turmoil of fear, illicit love, and dark secrets. Finding a courage she did not think she possessed, she fights the strange war-torn country and her own personal demons to emerge, like the land, proud and strong.
