The backdrop to this story is the raging Nigeria/Biafra civil war (1967-1970). Titi, a young Biafran girl, arrives in Geneva, Switzerland, in the employ of Chukwuka and Ngozi Okeke, as a maid. What Titi lacked in formal education, she more than made up in charm and stunning beauty. She soon leaves the Okeke household for reasons related to her love life, and is then employed as a nurse-maid by an American family. She gets seriously and emotionally involved with Eddy, the brother of the President of an East African country, and fi nds herself entangled in matters of love, war and diplomacy as Biafra struggles to achieve international recognition. The story tells about a small community of Africans in Switzerland, the intrigues of their interactions and the dynamics of their lives.
