"One never wants to believe the worst about those they love. So I did not. And I never shared what I knew with Germaine. She certainly would not have allowed it to get to this. I pull out the single sheet of paper and start reading."
In 1994, the world is about to change. The first truly democratic election in South Africa is about to unite Nelson Mandela’s rainbow nation at the ballot box. And, across the world, those in exile, those who could not return home, those who would not return home, watch and wait. Martin O’Malley isn’t one of those watching and waiting. He is too busy trying to figure out if Germaine Spencer really is the girl for him. And then Germaine is pregnant and suddenly the world really has changed for Martin O’Malley.
With his MSc from London School of Economics,post-apartheid South Africa seems like a place he, his child and wife can have it all. But will he?
