Love in the Driest Season: A Family Memoir Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1997 foreign correspondent Neely Tucker and his wife, Vita, arrived in Zimbabwe. After witnessing the devastating consequences of AIDS and economic disaster on the countrys children, the couple started volunteering at an orphanage where a critically ill infant, abandoned in a field on the day she was born, was trusted to their care. Within weeks, Chipo, the baby girl whose name means “gift,” would come to mean everything to them. Their decision to adopt her, however, would challenge an unspoken social norm: that foreigners should never adopt Zimbabwean children. Against a background of war, terrorism, disease, and unbearable uncertainty about the future, Chipos true story emerges as an inspiring testament to the miracles that love—and dogged determination—can sometimes achieve.

Synopsis:

Against a background of war, terrorism, disease, and unbearable uncertainty in Zimbabwe, this memoir of a journalist and his family emerges as an inspiring testament to the miracles that love--and dogged determination--can sometimes achieve.
