When Helen's daughter Ellie returns to her childhood home in Kenya on her father's death after twenty-five years away, it means facing the past. Her upbringing in colonial Africa--"stiff whiskies, keeping up appearances and English gardens amidst the African Bush--"was marked by a violent father she didn't really know. Yet Ellie is determined to find out the truth about her family ghosts--"what was her father's dark secret, and will the truth finally free her from the past?
