They take on their former positions as teachers, but are beset by obstacles.

I have never been this angry reading anything in my life. Not angry at the author... but about his subject, about the injustice in the world, about my powerlessness to stop it. This is not a light story, but I am the better for having read it.

"A first novel by the internationally best-selling author of A Long Way Gone is an intimate parable about postwar life in Sierra Leone in which two long-time friends return to their ruined home village and struggle to rebuild in the face of violence, scarcity and a corrupt foreign mining company."
