The sequel to the bestselling Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight Born in England and uprooted to southern Africa as a toddler by her parents, Alexandra Fuller experienced a unique upbringing – both coloured with tragedy and joy – against the backdrop of the Rhodesian wars. Following her marriage to American Charlie Ross, she leaves Africa for Wyoming in the United States. This sequel to the bestselling Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight vividly captures the highs, lows and ultimate dissolution of Fuller’s twenty-year marriage and her unbreakable tie to her African past as she searches for explanations for the present and answers for the future. Interlaced with stories from her childhood in Africa, Fuller paints a brilliant picture of an expatriate’s love for her homeland, a daughter’s acceptance of her father and the moving journey of her marriage and divorce. Poignant, candid and wistfully humorous, Leaving Before the Rains Come will resonate with anyone who has ever fallen out of love – with a person, idea or a place – and into self-acceptance and the belief that only we can save ourselves. ‘Remarkable, beautifully written and fantastically entertaining... a compulsive read’ Observer

An African freedom fighter, a Special Forces soldier and the woman who loved them both. It is the summer of 1972 and Zimbabwe is at war. Amid the violence, Sengamo is framed for the rape of a white girl. He is forced to flee his village kraal for the killing fields of Mozambique, where an enemy soldier spares his life in a chance encounter that has far reaching consequences. Isabella lives a quiet life, alone on a remote farm in the hills of Nyanga. But her peaceful world is threatened when Mugabe's henchmen set up camp in the valley, waiting for their chance to strike and reclaim the land. Despite the danger, she refuses to abandon the home she loves and the ghosts that inhabit it. One day a stranger arrives at the farm. It is the start of a love affair that will change Isabella s world forever and bring Sengamo closer to his destiny. Out of the brutality of Zimbabwe emerges a hauntingly beautiful love story; an unforgettable tale of a tragic country, where extraordinary allegiances triumph over segregation.

In this book, Fuller searches for herself as her life falls apart around her. Fuller’s journey of self-discovery began in March 2010 when she learned from her sister, Vanessa, who lived in South Africa, that their father, Tim, had fallen ill and might die. Fuller could not get to Africa quickly from Wyoming, where she had moved with her American husband and was raising their three children. Amazing everyone, Tim rallied to celebrate his seventieth birthday. Fuller bitterly wished she could have been there with her loving, but chaotic, family. Her parents spent their married life moving around Malawi, Zimbabwe, and Zambia, trying to farm but mostly having one alcohol-fueled escapade after another. Fuller did not confide her feelings to her husband, Charlie. She felt that he would want to rush to the rescue…
