-++-+
After six years in England, Rachel has returned to Kenya and the farm where she spent her childhood, but the beloved home sheG++--+++d longed for is much changed. Her fatherG++--+++s new companionG++--+---a strange, intolerant womanG++--+---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.
