How do you bridge the gap between the life you remember as a child and a new life that circumstances have thrust upon you? Can the gap between living on one continent and adapting to life on another ever be fully embraced? Young Sammy is uprooted from his home in Zimbabwe and all that he has held dear. Some relationships are made stronger by the move. His aunt Maggie and the African, Morris who was born in the same province of Matabeleland, become his support. New friendships are forged. The deep compassion given by Jeffery, in California, helps him break through old resistance, especially with the troubling relationship with Maggie's friend, Peter. The path of finding peace and acceptance is the journey Sammy faces, that brings him full circle back to the home he was forced to leave. The heartfelt story of moving to South Africa and then to the United States--of finding forgiveness and learning to love--is one that many can relate to. Many, like Sammy, Maggie, and Morris, have chosen or been forced to leave the countries of their birth. Both sweet and painful memories carve the path to embracing what has been, while striving forward to create a brighter future.
