Stepping off the boat in Mombasa, eighteen-year-old Rachel Fullsmith stands on Kenyan soil for the first time in six years. She has come home.

But when she reaches the family farm at the end of the dusty Rift Valley road, Rachel finds that much has changed. Her father has moved his new lover and her strange son into the family home. And Michael, the clever Kikuyu boy from her childhood, has started to look at her differently. As rumors grow of violence between the Mau Mau freedom fighters and British soldiers, Rachel is drawn into a secret relationship, one that demands a terrible betrayal. But how can she be her father’s daughter and remain true to herself?

And what if choosing one means losing the other?

"A wonderful, stunning, heart-wrenching tale of love, danger and self-discovery"

KATE FURNIVALL, bestselling author of The Russian Concubine

‘Jennifer McVeigh manages to transport, the reader right to the heart of Africa with her vivid, atmospheric prose’
