The story of a passionate lava affair set against a gorgeous east African backdrop. Tea on the Blue Sofa is a heart-breaking true account of mad, intemperate love and the ways we cope when is it taken from us. She is secretly in love and spends hours alone in her beautiful house in the African countryside, waiting for her lover. But when he is shot, on the way to see her, she must confront the loss alone.
Just as their affair was clandestine, so her grief must be private, a discreet mourning, hidden from the world.
