Anna Chadwick follows her husband to Tanzania where he becomes general manager of a mill. At first, she imagines herself a “lone wren perched on the sidelines while her husband becomes leader of the flock.” But, through a series of dramatic episodes, and a growing understanding of the effects of poverty, AIDS and corruption, a recognition of the heritage all humankind shares, she is able to embrace the men, women and children of the village she comes to love.
