Description
In this stunning debut novella, Rebecca Walker turns her attention to the power of love and the limitations of the human heart. When Farida, a sophisticated college student, falls in love with Ade, a young Swahili man living on an idyllic island off the coast of Kenya, the two plan to marry and envision a simple life together free of worldly possessions and concerns. But when Farida contracts malaria and finds herself caught in the middle of a civil war, reality crashes in around them. The lovers solitude is interrupted by a world in the throes of massive upheaval that threatens to tear them apart, along with all they cherish.
Haunting, exquisite, and certain to become a classic, "Ade" will stay with you long after you put it down. This is a timeless love story set perfectly, heartbreakingly, in our time.
