Book Description
Famous classical pianist, Stanley Miles-Harcourt, `Smiles`, arrives in Congo to play a concert for Peace and Reconciliation. He also wants to make amends with his former schoolteacher and mentor, Lyman Andrew, who has buried himself deep within the war-torn jungle. Smiles owes his success to this man and harbors a terrible secret from his brutal public school days. On a ramshackle boat with the grand piano meant for this recital Smiles heads upriver into a world outside time. He is escorted by Lola, who is married to a feared Congolese military officer and her adolescent brother. Amid the beauty and terror of the forest Smiles and Lola begin to fall in love, and they dare to dream of a life for themselves beyond the horrors of war. Lola`s brother however discovers Smiles` school diary and the barbaric secret it hides, and all the while an ever vengeful leopard is following them into the darkness. The Leopard`s Wife is a searing look at the discontents of two vastly different cultures, and reveals the uncivilized cruelty and tender mercies shared by both.
