Is love ever enough? Anne is in Ghana for the first time. Her father, Dick, has been working up country for an NGO since his daughter was a small child. They no longer really know each other. A few days into Anne's six-month stay, the houseboy Moses returns from a trip and Anne is left with a growing feeling that she's surplus to requirements. Her father is grumpy and distant, Moses distinctly put out at her continued presence. She finds respite teaching at a local Catholic school. Then out of the blue a terrible accident involving her father changes everything. Anne's close relationship with Michael, a priest who's already in trouble with his superiors in the Church, reaches a tipping point that endangers them both. With her father dead and Michael sent home in disgrace, Anne is forced to confront her future and her failings in the brutal glare of the African sun.
