Summary: Expatriates in Africa find themselves in morally ambiguous territory in this atmospheric tale of passion.

Prizewinning story writer Rosa Shand makes an impressive debut with a novel lushly set in the tumultuous Africa of the 1970s. Agnes is a dissatisfied wife who has come with her husband, a minister, to teach in Kampala, Uganda. The disintegration of their marriage and Agnes' ecstatic affair is played out against this dangerously unsettled atmosphere, tak moreing the reader on a sensuous and unforgettable journey.

Rosa Shand teaches English at Converse College in Spartanburg, South Carolina. This is her first novel.

"A writer of such extraordinary passion and intelligence, you find yourself seduced and longing for more." (Sandra Scofield, Chicago Tribune)

"The Gravity of Sunlight is lapidary . . . Shand is a sort of Didion." (John Leonard, Newsday)

"Remarkable . . . written with acute, sensual detail." (Margot LivesEy, The New York Times Book Review)

"Wonderful . . . her characters remain utterly sympathetic." (Carolyn See, The Washington Post) less
