about this book: "A captivating story written from the heart" (5* Amazon review)

What is it like being a stranger in your own country?

This is what faces Yohannes, returning to Ethiopia as a fully grown adult having been adopted from an orphanage when he was a baby and brought up in the UK. Looking completely Ethiopian but knowing nothing of the culture or the language, he is, at first, a fish out of water, bumbling around Addis Ababa like a lost tourist. However, a raft of unique characters soon helps him to settle in - and maybe he will even find love.....

Yohannes Ishi has been getting four and five star ratings on Amazon and Goodreads. Full of amusing anecdotes and memorable characters, it is ideal for anyone looking to enjoy an entertaining, light read - particularly those who have an interest in Africa or Ethiopia or who are interested in new cultures.

I am an Ethiopian living in the UK and I wanted to show people an Africa which is not often seen in the media. My Africa, although it has its dark sides, is also full of fun and friendship and this is what I want my readers - whether Ethiopian or not - to see.
