Story of the power of love and the limitations of the human heart. When Farida, a sophisticated college student, falls in love with Ade, a young Swahili man living on an idyllic island off the coast of Kenya, the two plan to marry and envision a simple life together, free of worldly possessions and concerns. But when Farida contracts malaria and finds herself caught in the middle of a civil war, reality crashes in around them.

This is a great, rich story, beautifully written. It pulls you in and takes you to another place full of beauty, romance, adventure. Even though it is a fairly short novel (around 100 pages) you feel fully satisfied at the end.

"Still, sometimes at night, in our bed, gripped by insecurity I asked him why he chose me. Because you are my destiny, he might say. But this most often: because you were free to choose, and you chose me."
