Arriving in South Africa just after Mandela’s release, Canadian foreign correspondent Lucie Page fell in love with the politician Jay Naidoo. She then took the agonising decision to leave her four-year-old son behind in Canada in order to marry Jay. This frank and compelling memoir recounts her divided loyalties and struggle with depression against the backdrop of South Africa’s momentous transition. It includes portraits of prominent people such as Nelson Mandela, the Clintons and Fidel Castro.
