A story of cross-cultural love and redemption set in East Africa. Zachye Katura, tending cattle in the grasslands of Kaaro Karungi, and Michael Lacey, the child of missionaries, are happy in their childhood idyll. But the world around them is changing, propelling them towards tragedy. Haunted by grief and guilt, they grow up severed from their families and ancestral heritage. When they both fall in love with the same woman, they must each face their past and hear their ancestors, if they are to be the one to win her... The Ghosts of Eden is a gripping story of loss, infatuation, atonement and the inheritance of love. In a world where ancient ways of life and belief are being overwhelmed by the new, neither a bandit-soldier in the remnants of Idi Amin's army nor a restless and detached surgeon can escape the memory of innocent boyhood. The reader is drawn on to a moving denouement, where love and mortality are confronted. Two men; one woman: which one walks beside her on the shores of the Indian Ocean? The Ghosts of Eden will appeal to lovers of contemporary fiction and lovers of stories set in Africa.
