Born in the sunset of the British Empire, Ben Hooper grew up in Kenya as colonial rule evolved into independence. Arriving in Britain to read Law at university, he finds acclimatising to the so called ‘home country' a challenge.
Fellow students he forms relationships with include Charlotte, strikingly attractive to him, but with strong intellectual socialist views at odds with his colonial background. Contrasting issues come to light of racism, oppression and class in their respective countries, challenging preconceptions on both sides.
Should Ben continue with his studies in England, adapting to an unfamiliar life? Or is his destiny to be on the family ranch on the Laikipia plateau of northern Kenya, the country he loves, helping to fight the threats to Africa's rare and endangered species he cares so much about, particularly the rhino?
On his return to Kenya for the summer vacation, an unexpected visitor brings the matter to a head. Days of adventure and growing mutual attraction come to a dramatic conclusion.
