We are delighted to announce the launch of Under the Acacia Tree, a fantastic novel that transports you from the winter cold to the African heat. This beautifully written debut was inspired by the author’s own experiences travelling and working (on health and human rights issues) in Uganda and Nepal. As well as sharing some insight into an exotic part of the world that remains unknown by many, the author, Ed Renshaw, wanted to explore the process of change resulting from opening yourself up to the wider world. In that sense, the book could be seen as a coming of age journey as a young British medical student finds himself adapting to a totally unfamiliar culture and way of life.
About Under The Acacia Tree
When medical student Doug accepts a placement at a field hospital in Uganda, he hopes it will get his life back on track after a sudden and traumatic break-up with his ex-girlfriend.
On route to Uganda, a chance encounter with Shistri, a young teacher who has escaped her sheltered existence in Nepal, sets Doug on a journey that will open his eyes to a wider world.
Though the two live separate lives, their paths cross again in tragic circumstances, and as they begin to share their struggles adjusting to an unfamiliar world, they grow closer and closer.
With their time in Uganda coming to an end, they must decide whether they can make a life for themselves, or if the call of home is too strong.
