After her mother dies, Joan, an American artist, travels to Africa in search of her sister, a nun. But in the turmoil of African revolution and political corruption, the sisters are separated. The story of their reunion, and the world-worn people who help them, is one that is lyrical, earthy, and spellbinding. Lucinda Roy is a Distinguished Professor of English at Virginia Tech.
