A Man Cannot Cry

Author: Keverne, Gloria Set In . . .
 Africa, Zambia
Genre: Fiction
Time Frame: 1950s
Published: 1985
Description: He Was a brilliant Doctor and a Man of Powerful Needs and Desires.
Dr. Than Profane had come to the Quaker mission in Africato see his dying father. His decision to stay could change not only his life but the lives of everyone he touches
Accepted at first by the small community, Than's brash, American ways, his appetite for life and love and his open contempt for hypocrisy quickly made him the
center of controversy. He wouldn't accept an eighteenth century way of living when he knew that twentieth century technology could save so many lives.

This engrossing and unforgettable epic weaves together one man's conflicting fascinations and ambitions with the natives and the harsh reality of their lives and with the missionaries, steadfast to the faithful but brutally unforgiving to those who transgress.

There were two worlds and through Than Profane they inevitably collided.

"Long, rich and detailed, it is a wonderful book!' -THE WASHINGTON POST

"... in the grand tradition of Gone with the Wind and The Thornbirds!'
-THE LONDON DAILY EXPRESS
