From Goodreads:
Part love story, part journey of discovery, and part comedy of manners, Sue Eckstein’s captivating novel explores a disparate group of expatriates in West Africa and their complicated ties to the country, its people, and to each other. When new diplomat Daniel Maddison arrives in Bakinabe, nothing is quite as it seems or what he imagined it would be. Isabel Redmond is tiring of her husband’s fascination with black women’s breasts; the High Commissioner and his wife, Fenella, are both enjoying illicit affairs; an old English judge is wandering through the scrub following a tribe of Fulani herdsmen; Bob Newpin is about to make a killing in timeshares; and just what Father Seamus is up to is anyone’s guess. Searching for something beyond the cocktail parties, golf, and gossip, Daniel finds himself drawn to people and places outside the experience of his High Commission colleagues—and specifically to a dusty warehouse in the heart of the city where a thin blonde woman is silently measuring out lengths of brightly colored cloth. Funny, lyrical, and ultimately redemptive, Sue Eckstein’s assured debut about passion, loneliness, and being an outsider has a deliciously intricate plot, compelling characters, and razor-sharp dialog.

I quite enjoyed the book, brought back good memories from my days as a volunteer in West-Africa.
