Ok...I'm on a roll....this is very good 39% of the way through. It's the story of an immigrant from Ethiopia and his relationship with a white woman and her biracial daughter. Set in Washington DC, it's a love story of a man trying to find happiness in the midst of a difficult existence...well, at least that's what it's about so far. Likeable characters reaching out to connect - at least so far! Done! It could have been so much more! I liked the characters and I wanted more for just didn't pan out. Their difficult lives continued to be difficult and I want their lives to improve. Go figure!
