In this dramatic sequel to Admission, a Story Born of Africa, Adam Broadford’s continuing journey of transformation is profound, compelling, and life-changing. Deserting another call-up from the South African Army, and a stowaway on a Union-Castle ship bound from Cape Town to Southampton, Adam yells a promise back to Felicity, the love of his life, to return. Desperation, desire, and guilt plague him. On his adventures he seeks resolution from his unusually difficult past, encounters far-influencing people, but remains challenged by his own deceptions and betrayals.
Evading the law, Adam bicycles up the length of Britain to the remote Orkney Islands. His brief refuge on the deserted islet of Swona comes to an end when the Home Office authorities catch up with him. He flees to Canada, finds work in the far-flung Nakina, Northern Ontario, but still, given his promise, feels compelled to go back to Africa. And once there, with Felicity, how will he possibly escape again?
