Description

"[A] luminous tale of passion and betrayal" set in the post-colonial and civil war eras of Sierra Leone (The New York Times).

Winner of the Commonwealth Writers' Prize for Best Book

As a decade of civil war and political unrest comes to a devastating close, three men must reconcile themselves to their own fate and the fate of their broken nation. For Elias Cole, this means reflecting on his time as a young scholar in 1969 and the affair that defined his life. For Adrian Lockheart, it means listening to Elias's tale and following his own heart into a heated romance. For Elias's doctor, Kai Mansaray, it's desperately battling his nightmares by trying to heal his patients.

As each man's story becomes inexorably bound with the others', they discover that they are connected not only by their shared heritage, pain, and shame, but also by one remarkable woman.

The Memory of Love is a beautiful and ambitious exploration of the influence history can have on generations, and the shared cultural burdens that each of us inevitably face.

"A soft-spoken story of brutality and endurance set in postwar Sierra Leone... Tragedy and its aftermath are affectingly, memorably evoked in this multistranded narrative from a significant talent." -- Kirkus Reviews
