The Darling

(2004)
A novel by

 
Hannah Musgrave has always been on the run: from her adoring parents, her many lovers, even from herself. As a young woman, she dropped out of her privileged Boston world to work for the terrorist group the Weathermen. Her activities put Hannah on the FBI's most wanted list forcing her to flee to Liberia in West Africa. There she marries an ambitious, young politician and settles down to being a wife and mother. Liberia, in the meantime, is a country waiting to explode. A century of American exploitation has created a corrupt elite and a fragile military state where the threat of civil war is ever present. The violent events that follow touch everyone close to Hannah and once again she has to escape. This time though the past won't disappear. Reminiscent of the novels of Greene and Conrad, The Darling is big, bold, utterly compelling storytelling.
