Abstract:

Margaret and Patrick have been married just a few months when they set off on what they hope will be a great adventure, a year living in Kenya. While Patrick practices equatorial medicine, Margaret works as a photojournalist. Shuttling between tony expatriate suburbs and squalid shantytowns, Margaret quickly realizes there is a great deal she doesn?t know about the complex mores of her new home, and about her own husband. A British couple invites the newlyweds to join them on a climbing expedition to Mount Kenya, and they eagerly agree. But during their harrowing ascent, the unthinkable happens. In a reckless moment, a horrific accident occurs, and a life is claimed. In the aftermath of the tragedy, Margaret struggles to understand what happened on the mountain and how these events have transformed her and her marriage, perhaps forever.
