Lament for a Silver-Eyed Woman

In the author’s second novel, she explores uncharted fictional ground, the experience of the Peace Corps where two friends find themselves in the mountains and rain forests of Cameroon, perhaps a place of perfect hiding for the son of Cameroon’s first colonial German governor, a Nazi who could well have returned to the place of his birth to escape detection after World War II. What Mattie and Jo find leads them to their post-service trek to Beirut and to the Palestinian refugee camps where their lives are unalterably changed.

--“Good fiction on a serious subject written with a wonderfully funny voice"—New York Newsday.
