The Struggle for Mother Tongue Education: A Tale of Love, Dedication, and Controversy
When a university professor decides to open a private school where young children can be taught in their mother tongue, she finds herself at the center of controversy and intrigue. This is a story about the love and dedication of three women: a young, independent businesswoman, an older teacher, and her American friend. As political events swirl around these women, and as Kenya moves towards democracy and national cohesion, the reader is caught up in the struggle of the human spirit to realize the goal of justice for all people.
