Karabo is a survivor of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi, which claimed the life of her father and sisters, and now she is left alone and lonely in the midst of wounded hearts of Rwanda. She does not know the whereabouts of her mother.
When Karabo goes to live with her paternal uncle Kamanzi, a colonel in the new army, she meets Shema, another genocide survivor, one of her uncle's young escorts. Shema's charm gives Karabo some jingling. She will surrender her heart to him, but it's complicated --Shema knows only a part of her story. Shall she reveal the other part of the story to him? She is bamboozled.
Hearts Among Ourselves is a story of love, hatred, and the intersection of the two. Karabo and Shema, two grieving orphans, grow up in a torn society--caught between the world of the living and the dead, and the conflict between the Hutus and the Tutsis.
Some say love is like water--it flows with everything on its way. Will Karabo and Shema be swept up in its current or tossed to the shore?

About the Author

A. Happy Umwagarwa is an author with interests in both fiction and non-fiction literature about why people think, feels, and act the way they do.
In 1994, she survived the genocide against the Tutsi, which claimed the life of her father and other members of her family. Despite the thorns of life she had to step on, Happy graduated from the University of Greenwich, London, with a master’s degree in management, and embarked on an international career as a human resources management expert, which she combines with her writing endeavors. She is married and a mother to two wonderful daughters she calls her little angels.
Guided by the quote from Toni Morrison, “If there is a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, you must be the one to write it,” Happy states that she writes for herself, her daughters, her fellow Rwandans, and the entire humanity.
