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. Strong, successful and fiercely independent, Malaika works in the Nairobi office of a US aid agency. But she, too, carries a burden within: she fled her abusive father as a young child, and in doing so was forced to abandon her majestic Maasai heritage and repress painful memories. But the heart knows no boundaries, and their love takes its course, drawing attention from officials both black and white. Malaika and Jack must decide if their pasts can permit a future for their love."@en ;
