Overview

Meander is a novel, a love story between Maudie, the daughter of the president of the African nation of Zimbabwe and his late wife, and Oscar, son of a white American Episcopal priest and his successful realtor wife. Oscar and Maudie meet as MBA students at The Wharton School of Business at the U. Of Pennsylvania.

Maudie is being groomed to succeed her father as president and Oscar is torn between his wish to save the world and his overwhelming wish to marry Maudie, a wish frustrated by the demands of her life.

The novel places their love affair in the historical circumstance of Zimbabwe plummeting into poverty and chaos. The fast-changing realities of gender, race and international politics make this love affair a litmus test for a world that is emerging but not yet fully shaped.

You will come to love these young people nearly as deeply as they love each other, and find yourself torn by the forces beyond their control that make their love equal parts healing and wounding.
