Set in Rhodesia 1976, this coming-of-age story delivers twisted romantic adventure. Overnight, sixteen-year-old Sandra Robertson finds herself alone in a hostile land where her education is terminated. Friends rally and send her to live with her grandmother. A true survivor with ambition, Sandy has little experience but manages to secure work.
Hotel employment not only provides food and accommodation, but it also happens to provide education of a different sort. Sandy’s head spins from chivalry to curtness and from bedlam to bedrooms in a series of dodgy encounters. Other messed-up women try to intervene but to no avail. Only one person can save her, but will he try?
