An account of reconciliation between the Nayak army and the Bonandé rebel forces of a fictional West African country. As a president and a colonel meet to cement their peace agreement the two groups attempt to trust one another. Told from the female perspective, 'Night of Truth' expresses the frustration of the women who, having been forced into a war by men, must now accept an imposed peace. A perceptive debut.
