Reeling from a doomed relationship, Jack Morgan jumps at the opportunity to take a UN posting in Kenya, where he falls in love with the Serengeti, the vibrant culture of the country, and Malaika, a Maasai who has escaped her painful tribal past to become a proud and self-sufficient woman. Frank Coates' novel is a clash of love, culture, and traditions, delivered with tenderness by David Tredinnick, who also handles a multinational array of accents - from Australian to American to African - with equal aplomb. Tredinnick shines as the lovesick Jack, whose fragile emotional state blossoms into intense passion.
After a disastrous affair, Jack Morgan is at an emotional crossroads. When he's offered a UN posting in Kenya he grabs it, believing time spent on foreign soil will help him forget and move on. But Africa is a land of danger, adventure and temptation, and within weeks of arriving Jack is seduced - by the spectacular Serengeti National Park, the rich Kenyan culture, and a beautiful Maasai woman named Malaika.

Captivating story with sometimes unnecessary deviation. When listening, make sure you can have accelerated speed of 1.5x or you will be asleep very quickly
