A Man in Africa

Reporter Roberta Bovi's marriage ends the day it begins.
The man she has loved for six years -- and married -- turns out to be so faithless that she realizes that she has lived a fictional life, happy only because she was blind.
Roberta walks away from the debris of the relationship in nothing but the white sheath dress she wore to the ceremony, and retro sunglasses that look ridiculous at a tragedy.
And her passport. As a journalist, she is never without it.
A writing assignment in Cambodia saves her from facing the man she now needs to divorce. There is no home to return to, so she goes on to Uganda, to cover a story about the increase of AIDS in a country that had previously served as the model for successfully fighting the disease.
Roberta has no more illusions about love and fidelity, and reading the writings of Christopher Burton, a doctor and evolutionary biologist she is going to meet at Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, only convinces her further that humans are just apes that shed some hair.
Burton might have even fewer illusions than Roberta, but there is a heart beating beneath the white coat of a brave and very attractive doctor.
As Roberta stays to help at the hospital where he works, they find it hard to stay away from each other, even as both understand that love always requires faith.

From those who are capable of it...
