The book follows the journey of an American expatriate during a time of change in that country. In the 1980's, most expratriates were turning over their jobs to local indigineous people in most places in Africa. The programs were then run by corrupt governments that cared little about the well-being of indigineous people. McCauley's book shows in great detail the dilemma westerners faced while "turning over" successful programs to corrupt local governments.
The love story between Bob, the main character and Mary, keeps the reader on his/her toes. It is hard to predict what will happen next... and I believe, Mr. McCauley does a great job at keeping both the topics of love and Africa alive throughout his book.
The books deals also with complex issues such as: the difference between men and women, sex, drugs, corruption, dependency, violence and politics.
