fiona sweeney is thirty-six years old and longs to change the world. or play some small role in changing someone's life. thus she decides to take a librarian position in kenya africa. she travels to remote villages by camelback and delivers books to the tribes people there. she is particularly moved by a small tribe in mididima. she becomes wrapped up in the superstitions, traditions and cultural differences of the tribe when two books turn up missing. the camels will not return with books until the two books are returned. this begins a long journey for several of the characters in the book towards understanding and determining what is right for them. i felt some of the characters' stories could have been better developed, but overall, it was an enjoyable read.
