*** Who Will Catch Us As We Fall by Iman Verjee

Who Will Catch Us As We Fall centers on an Indian family living in Nairobi, Kenya and the difficult love story between the daughter and an African man, in the midst of a racist society. A corrupt police officer provides a strong secondary plot and the setting also figures prominently in the book. The love story is rather predictable but the societal and cultural portraits make for an enjoyable book.
