From the cover: “This is a novel about a black student in a white man's country and a white woman in a black man’s country. Dele is a student at a university in the United Kingdom; he has shone academically at a Nigerian university. He finds it hard to accept the coldness of the climate and the attitudes. His previous academic achievements are counted as slightly second-rate and ‘liberal’ whites prove racially prejudiced at heart. However, he meets Daisy, a white girl who accepts him and loves him for what he is. Life becomes bearable and they marry.”
