This was not a bad book, but the writing was pretty bad. I can forgive Meryl Sawyer, however, as I believe this was her first book. Alexa MacKenzie's first novel is made into a movie and the people she meets on the set drive the next few months of her life. She writes a play, meets and falls in love with Mark Kimbrough, gets stuck in war-torn Sudan and encounters some pretty nasty characters.
I've always been a Meryl Sawyer fan. I looked for this--her first book--for a long time. It's out of print. It wasn't as strong a plot as some of her books, but I loved the settings. I've been to Cabo San Lucas and she must have as well. London was supurb as was the Sudan. Anyone familiar with the politics there will realize how accurate this was at the time it was written, over ten years ago.
The romance was gripping and the heroine truly unique. It could easily have been made a movie
