IT IS probably true to say that romance is the most popular form of fiction. This story has several love stories spanning continents and time.

Wangira, a young Kikuyu warrior, faces the dilemma of remaining faithful to his tribe's traditions or following a new path.

When he saves the life of a wealthy American tourist he is granted a chance.

His adoring benefactor dies leaving him a fortune.

Sam Wangira then decides to return to his native Kenya where he meets Dana Northcote, wife of a farm owner.

They embark on a passionate affair which will impact their lives for generations.

Many years later, during the political upheavals, he crosses paths with his unknown child, Jelani, and his past finally catches up with him.

This is a complex and spellbinding tale.
