  5. Davies moved to Botswana onon a hope, really She d met a Motswana, fallen in love, and was hopeful enough about their future to give life in Maun a chance And for a long time it worked she learned to love her life there, to connect with her lover s family she and her lover married, and she got invested in work that really mattered to her But assault brought cultural differences to the front of her relationship with her in laws what she needed at that point wasn t something that her life in Botsw [...]
