Overview
Under-achieving PA, Faye Bonsu, is on a mission to find love. A disastrous night out leaves pasta-fanatic Faye's romantic dreams in tatters and underscores her alienation from her African heritage.

Leaving her cosy middle-class life in London’s leafy Hampstead to find out what she's missing, Faye is whisked into the hectic social whirlpool of Ghana where she meets Sonny, the pretty-boy womaniser; Edwin, her host's America-crazy boyfriend; Baaba, of the enormous hips and sardonic tongue; and handsome Rocky Asante, a cynical, career-obsessed banker with no time for women… until now. In a world of food, fun and sun, Faye discovers that no matter how far you travel, you can't find love until you find yourself.
