Unexpected America is a mainstream memoir which reads like a thriller. Wanjiru Warama leaves Kenya in a huff and heads to the United States for a year’s sabbatical. From the first day, she realizes she has to learn to live all over again in a new culture she knows nothing about. Loneliness debilitates her until she meets “Mr. Savior” who becomes not only her savior, but her lover and abuser. Money runs out and she has to turn to housekeeping and babysitting to buy a ticket home. She keeps this hidden from her family and friends as the idealized American lifestyle turns into a mirage, which Warama plods along like one tethered until her persistence pays off.
