Two star-crossed lovers, one African, the other African-American, meet after a two-decades-long separation. How can the African ambassador reconcile his joy with the despair he may bring to one of the two women he loves? This novel is an intense exploration of the quandary of being in love with two different people at the same time. Peter Francis James delivers a compassionate performance as a decent enough man trying to determine which life decision to follow, the one dictated by his head, or the one that stirs his heart. James's studied performance can at times border on a monotone, but the compelling dialogues rescue the work. P.R. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
