Maggie, a British national was born and raised in India. In this book, she blends her story with that of her daughter Emma McCune in what is an epic tale of love and war. Emma McCune was the second wife of Dr Riek Machar, the South-Sudanese politician, former SPLA commander, former South Sudan VP and the current boss of SPLA-Nasir. Politics aside, Emma and Machar’s love story is truly beautiful, which is what the book is largely about.

She can never be sure, either, if it’s what made her a novelist. How O’Farrell has managed to remain such a successful author since her second child was born is a total mystery to me (her oldest, a boy, is now 13, and she has another daughter, aged five). Those life-threatening allergies have been compounded by eczema so severe that for the first five years of her life, she was literally covered.
