Description
Information
When Mary Anne Fitzgerald undertook the care of Peter Lekerian, a young Maasai, she believed him to be an orphan and he believed himself to be a warrior. Their relationship, fraught with inappropriate demands, difficult love and misunderstanding, stretched across two continents, for Mary Anne was expelled from Kenya and chose to live in London. The story she tells of cross-cultural adoption is illuminating, moving and often hilarious.
'Fitzgerald writes beautifully of her romance with Africa, her love for the land as well as the people: staying with the Maasai, attempting to understand their pastoral traditions, getting to know some of Peter's relatives... A powerful and compelling story.'
Rachel Silver, Traveller

'Highly readable... an honest, fighting book, the author's attempt to understand herself as well as the Africa of which she feels an inseparable part.'
