When I decided I wanted to write, I used your book as a resource during the entire process. Some of the more useful tools and ideas were the section sheets and the use of each section ending in a failure for the lead or a success for the lead's opposition. You were right--without them, the story would have run out of steam way too early and been boring as well. Also the placement of surprises kept the story interesting." --W. E.

Molly Marshall is fresh out of graduate school, armed with a shiny new degree in journalism and ready to take over the world. There's just one little problem: no one seems to care. Six months have passed since graduation and no matter how hard she tries, she can't find a paying job in the field she's spent years preparing to dominate. Stuck in a menial job she hates, plagued with memories of an abusive childhood, and engaged to a man she may no longer love, she's running out of options and fast. When she stumbles across a long-kept secret, though, everything changes and she's forced to make a choice. What will it be, her ambition or her heart? This standalone sequel to The Partition of Africa invites you to examine your thoughts on family, desire, and the nature of love itself.
