From Rush Leaming comes the stunning prequel to the #1 bestseller DON’T GO, RAMANYA.
In 1988, near the end of the Cold War, a group of young Americans working for an international aid organization plunge into the beautiful, fascinating, yet dangerous world of Zaire, Africa. Ambitious, if a bit naïve, they must overcome hardship and tragedy, pushing themselves to their personal limits, while forging strong bonds among themselves and the local villagers they’ve come there to help.
A thrilling adventure—romantic, lyrical and deeply heartfelt—THE WHOLE OF THE MOON explores the power of friendship and the struggles and triumphs of living as a stranger in a very strange land.
"THE WHOLE OF THE MOON delivers on its promise of adventure. It is compelling and completely unique in terms of storyline, offering readers a look into the past, but also a look into the volunteer efforts that occur in other countries to create self-sustainability.
It’s a story with unexpected twists. If anything, it seems cross-genre in my mind. Part mystery, part historical fiction, and part romance" -- Entrada Book Review
"Demonstrates the difference between a singular story and a gripping emotional journey that grabs one's heart and doesn't let go. It cements that pull with poetic and lovely descriptions and psychological and social insights in an approach that makes it highly recommended for any novel reader looking for a compelling saga of tough love and transformative changes." -- D. Donovan, The Midwest Book Review
