Short Description

In 1988, near the end of the Cold War, a group of young Americans working for an international aid organization plunge into the beautiful, fascinating, yet dangerous world of Zaire, Africa. Ambitious, if a bit naïve, they must overcome hardship and tragedy, pushing themselves to their personal limits, while forging strong bonds among themselves and the local villagers they’ve come there to help.

A thrilling adventure—romantic, lyrical and deeply heartfelt—THE WHOLE OF THE MOON explores the power of friendship and the struggles and triumphs of living as a stranger in a very strange land.
