This writer has been taking detours from regular writing. It happens and I had a request to review a book recently. I love any books set in my corner of the world, love them even more when the author reaches out to me for some thoughts. So, my detour lately has to do with this book: The Virgin Journey.
No, I haven’t finished reading it, but am eagerly turning the pages, and will share more on this story soon.
The Virgin Journey
by Mazzi Wampamba
Book One of The Reporter Trilogy
Gary Stokes, a young American from California, accepts a job that takes him to East Africa, a place he never imagined calling home. Loneliness confronts him as he struggles to understand his new, postcolonial environment and his role as an expatriate reporting in a foreign land. Gary, who promises his girlfriend in the U.S. that he will never let anything come between them, finds himself falling in love with a Kenyan native and relying on the help of Guy Woodward, his new expatriate friend, to help him navigate his way through the complicated love triangle.
