THE STRONGMAN OF KAMPALA
Set in the isolated Prairies, Azim is desperate to rebuild the family fortune lost in Idi Amin’s Uganda. But when his wife gives birth to a child with a rare disease and his hard-won business goes bankrupt, he starts drinking heavily. Ruby is forced to take charge of the family. Like Azim, this is not the life she signed up for. It’s only when they both let go of the past that they can begin to build a new life and a new home together. Ruby and Azim, whose marriage had been arranged, fall in love.
