Description

Rain tells the story of the Dream Walker Maya, an empathic clairvoyant who experiences history through the eyes of other Dream Walkers across time.


Under the guidance of ancestral Spirits, Maya strives to find her bearings as she is swept up in the thousand-year saga of the devastatingly insidious legacies of colonizing empires that continue to ravage her home. Braving uncharted waters, Maya discovers illuminating truths concealed behind the veil of History's public myths.


Her quest unites her across the centuries with ancestral Dream Walkers who will teach her to understand the power of her gifts, and Maya learns to fulfill her destiny as a visionary steward of both the Past and the Future in an ever-changing world.


A poetic meditation on History through the echoes of Oral Tradition, Rain recalls the song of storytellers born on the shores of the Great Lake Nam Lolwe at the eye of the Nile in the heart of East Africa.

Review quote

"...written in prose, yet it sounds like Rumi!" --Anonymous

"Rain's meditation on life --fleeting, yet eternal-- is beautiful in the fullest sense of the word. Its poetic sense of connectivity, in content & in rhythm, feels like the flow of memories in moments past, present & future." -- J. Fowler

"Reading Rain, I have to wonder: are we as Africans just really resilient, or do we simply not understand the disruption and brutality of the colonizers? Every student in school needs to read this book." -- T. Kibor

"...a story of immense beauty & astonishing resilience" -- TK

"Rain is addictive! A pure delight to the senses... Listening to Canto 32, I felt like the dust in my soul was being washed away... like my spirit was being cleansed by the poetry of Rain!" -- M.M. Green
