Abstract:

"When Italian-American journalist Anna arrives in Nairobi, she knows that the daily atrocities she reports on will be upsetting, but she has to battle her own personal demons too. To escape the violence that surrounds her, Anna drinks too much and gets ever more entangled with two men: Michael, a fellow war-correspondent, and Nick, a wealthy coffee farmer - each of them hard to resist, each of them hard to love. And then Mercy enters her life - ostensibly as her maid, but immediately becoming Anna's most adamant judge, her harshest critic, and gradually - painfully, also her counsellor and her friend."--Publisher description.
