Not only is this book incredibly racist and imperialistic. The hero sexually assualts the herione and then blames her for being naked while trying to bath. The author clearly did not put much thought into this book at all or the wider real world implications of fgm or female gential mulitation. Nor does she seem to take the time to actually research africa and the different tribes and cultures. Not all tribes practiced fgm and because it doesnt even bother to specify the part of Africa you dont even kmow what tribe is part of. Also the fact that this takes place on a mission creates another gross power dynamic over the villagers. This books is incredibly problematic and its obvious the author did not take the time nor effort to research. Its 2018 white authors do better.
