Neely Tucker describes how he and his wife went to Zimbabwe, where he worked as a foreign correspondent, during the late 1990s. Painting the Zimbabwe setting with colorful descriptions, he describes how it was impossible for them not to become deeply affected by the AIDS epidemic, political unrest, and other devastation felt by the people there. The discovery of a dying child, Chipo, whose recuperation they oversee, changes their lives forever. As it becomes progressively more dangerous for journalists and their families to remain in Zimbabwe, their steadfast love for Chipo complicates their fate. Facing enormous uncertainty in their lives, they must make overwhelming decisions. B.J.P. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
