Green City in the Sun

 
Green City in the Sun is the saga of two proud and powerful families -- one British, one African -- and their battle over Kenya's destiny in the twentieth century.

It is 1917 when pioneer Dr. Grace Treverton arrives in Kenya, determined to bring modern medicine to the natives. Her brother, Sir Valentine Treverton, has his own dream for the British protectorate: to establish an agricultural empire there to rival any in England. But the dreams of the wealthy Trevertons collide with those of the African family that has lived on the land for generations. Grace finds a deadly rival in Wachera, an African medicine woman, who fights to maintain native traditions against the encroaching whites. Wachera places a curse on the Trevertons, after which a series of tragedies threatens to destroy what the once great family fought to create. And the fates of future generations of these two remarkable families become inextricably bound.
