When Love Hurts captures the hopes and despair of Makepeace Brown, whose insatiable curiosity leads her to explore the post-colonial worlds of Africa, Europe and America in search of meaning. Her Peace Corps lover finds her in Africa, a mixed-race beauty whom he set out to conquer. In England, she finds companionship and adventure with a native Scouse speaker from Liverpool. He shares her African heritage but is from a family who lost touch with the “homeland” after the eighteenth century. Finally, Makepeace meets and engages a Spaniard of Moorish origin, who takes her on a metaphorical dance for life.
