Summary, etc.:
"After six years exiled in England, Rachel has returned to Kenya and the farm where she spent her childhood, only to find the home she has longed for in the grip of change. Her father's new companion--a strange, intolerant woman--has taken over the household, and the political climate in the country is growing more unsettled by the day. Looming over them all is the threat of the Mau Mau - a secret society intent on uniting the Africans and overthrowing the whites. As Rachel struggles to find her place in her home, she initiates a secret relationship, one that will demand from her an act of betrayal. Only 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."--Page [4] of cover.
