Summary

In this stunning debut novella, Rebecca Walker turns her attention to the power of love and the limitations of the human heart. When Farida, a sophisticated college student, falls in love with Adé, a young Swahili man living on an idyllic island off the coast of Kenya, the two plan to marry and envision a simple life together—free of worldly possessions and concerns. But when Farida contracts malaria and finds herself caught in the middle of a civil war, reality crashes in around them. The lovers’ solitude is interrupted by a world in the throes of massive upheaval that threatens to tear them apart, along with all they cherish.

Haunting, exquisite, and certain to become a classic, Adé will stay with you long after you put it down. This is a timeless love story set perfectly, heartbreakingly, in our time.

“Read this book! An incredible journey! A beautiful love story!” —Madonna

“Memoirist Walker makes her fiction debut with a short, sad tale of love that flowers but cannot take root in Kenya. The prose is gorgeous.” Kirkus Reviews

“Vivid…[Adé] will not soon be forgotten.” —New York Journal of Books
