The Gatuas live their lives at the very bottom. Gatua, a former mau mau detainee is a dour character who is lame from the experiences of detention. His wife Wahu is a deeply religious woman, small and wiry from laboring incessantly on the Solomons' farmThe Solomons, on the other hand are a wealthy family. The story begins with a quarrel between two boys, Jimmy and Joseph, a Gatua and a Solomon which forces Jimmy to run from home. His sister Wanja drops out of school and joins her increasingly mentally unbalanced mother laboring on the Solomons' farm. It is here that desperate, she gets seduced into sex and pregnancy by Joseph. Building on the foundations of wealth and political networks his father, Solomon had acquired as a colonial chief, Michael has become a powerful government minister. To protect their political and church positions from scandal the Solomons refuse to acknowledge Wanja then humiliate her further by giving her money to go away somewhere and have an abortion. Angry, she runs off to Nairobi to have her baby, vowing to hit back at the Solomons some day. Jimmy returns to find his mother mad and his father a cripple. That same night a fire burns down his parents hut and both die in it. His parents had been kind of strange. While Wahu had chosen to live her life in her own secret world of fervent prayers and hymns, Gatua had lived his in dubious silence and resignation. And because neither of them ever spoke about themselves Jimmi and Wanja know very little about the past of their parents' unhappy lives. But as he stands against the mud wall of his hut, his mind abuzz with questions about them, Kingei, his father's old friend comes and tells him:"By the end of 1952, your father Gatua was a prosperous man and Wahu was the happiest of women."From here on the story runs in two strands: The real-time story moves forward to trace the fortunes of the two families to the early nineties during the tumultuous clamor for political reform.

The enmity between the Gatuas and the Solomons begins the minute their progenitors meet at the farm of Major Ainsburry, a white man, long before the Mau Mau war, but for decades, tied together by a strange fate, their destinies would keep colliding as the Gatuas struggle against domination and the Solomons fight to retain their eminent social position. The Gatuas live their lives at the very bottom. Gatua, a former mau mau detainee is a dour character who is lame from the experiences of detention. His wife, Wahu, is a deeply religious woman who labors daily on the farm of their neighbors, the wealthy Solomons. The story begins when Michael, the head of the Solomon family wades into a quarrel between his son Joseph and Jimmi, a Gatua, forcing Jimmi to run from home. At home Jimmi's sister Wanja drops out of school and joins her increasingly mentally unbalanced mother on the Solomons’ farm. Desperate, she lets herself get seduced into pregnancy by the wily Joseph. By now Michael has become a powerful government minister, having built on the foundations of wealth and political networks his father, Solomon had acquired as a colonial chief. To protect their political and church positions they refuse to acknowledge Wanja. Angry, she runs off to Nairobi vows, to have her baby and hit back some day. Jimmi returns home but that same night his parents die in a fire. After the funeral, as Jimmi thinks about the unhappiness of his parents' life, wondering who of them could have burned the hut, Kingei, his father’s old friend comes and tells him the story of his parent’s past, saying:“By the end of 1952, your father Gatua was a prosperous man and your mother, Wahu was the happiest of women.” From here on the story of the Gatuas and their arch enemies, the Solomons, runs in two strands: The real-time story moves forward in time to trace the fortunes of the two families all the way to the early nineties during the tumultuous clamor for political reform. Jimmi goes to Nairobi in search of his sister Wanja, falls victim of corrupt policemen, is enticed into a middle-aged woman’s bed, and finally falls victim of a ruthless drug dealer who lets him go to prison. When he comes out he makes it big in construction. Sitting at the top of The Solomon Towers in Nairobi from where they rule their empire, the last thing that could enter the minds of Joseph, and his father Michael is the idea of Jimmi ever becoming their business and political rival, but suddenly, their attention is drawn to him when he begins to repair the road to the village so his trucks can deliver material for reconstruction of his father's old shop building.. They interpret this to mean Jimmi is positioning himself to challenge Michael in the coming elections. They begin to plot how to cripple Jimmy financially so he would never be a challenge to them. But Wanja, disguised as a tea girl in the Solomons' offices where she is pursuing her own plans for revenge hears about these plans and informs Jimmy. The Solomons kidnap her. During a rescue mission, Kingei, the old mau mau attacks the Solomons killing Michael and Joseph. Meanwhile the back story takes us backwards in time to the year 1928 when Gatua, forced by the colonial government’s demand for taxes travels in search of a job on a white man’s farm where he meets Solomon. Their enmity begins immediately for Solomon is an envious and selfish hypocrite whose resentment leads to his getting humiliated by the white man, for which he blames Gatua. Here too, Gatua meets Kingei who would become his lifelong friend, and Wahu his future wife. Solomon’s chance to cut Gatua to size would come in 1952 when the mau mau war breaks out. Gatua takes the mau mau oath. Solomon, a colonial chief, arrests him and sends him to detention from where he would return to find his children dead, his wealth taken by Solomon and a desperate Wahu become a spiritual and physical slave of the Solomons., Format Kindle, Edition: 2, Format: Ebook Kindle, Label: Roseansa Books/Githara Kimani, Roseansa Books/Githara Kimani, Product group: eBooks, Published: 2015-02-27, Release date: 2015-02-27, Studio: Roseansa Books/Githara Kimani
