Set in 1976, White Dog Fell From the Sky weaves together the stories of Isaac, a refugee fleeing from Apartheid in South Africa, and Alice, an American woman living in Botswana. Isaac's story was by far my favorite part of the book, and I would give his part of the story 5 stars. His thoughts are insightful and eloquent and he is very brave. With just the clothes on his back, he is forced to flee South Africa after witnessing a friend's murder. I did not find Alice's story nearly as engrossing. Her marriage falls apart and she begins a relationship with a man she meets on a business trip. Her relationship problems seem unimportant contrasted to Isaac's struggle. I found myself hurrying through the chapters about her to find out what would happen to Isaac. I would give her part of the book 3 stars, hence the four star average. Morse's writing was beautifully evocative, I will look forward to her next novel
