The book 'It's God's wish' includes a novelette with this same title, which relates the troubled relationship of the protagonist who is a French Catholic priest with a couple of American missionaries that set a church in the same village in West Africa where he preaches. This novelette is accompanied by six more short stories.
Below is a glimpse of the novelette that opens up the anthology:
The orange sphere of the setting sun glowed above the western golden hill tops, sneaking time and again between the broad leaves of the tick trees, which separated the hotel from the horizon line; a crimson sunset so typical to this part of the world, was in mid setting.
Father Felix Desirade parked his light bike at the narrow parking place at the feet of the balcony of the village's sole hotel. He climbed the stairs that led to the hotel's entrance ponderously, and uttered a sigh of relief as he reached the balcony's plain. He crossed the entrance of the small restaurant and reviewed with a comprehensive gaze the restaurant's empty hall. A typical African music filled the air, and at the bar near the entrance stood a young African, listening to A typical African music filled the air, and at the bar near the entrance stood a young African, listening to the local radio station.
'Are there any guests today Francois?' Father Desirad asked him while advancing towards the bar.

'No thanks, a local lager beer please,' Desirade hastened to answer.
"An African Sunset"
Reuven Shatz a young agronomist joins a small Israeli diplomatic delegation at the "Coast of Hope", a West African
acquainted with the life that he himself leads there.
As Shatz is supposed to replace Moshe Priel the instructor that is about to return back home as smoothly as possible, he is requested to work in correlation with Priel at the model farm near the town of Dialo; thus he spends the few days up to the Priels' departure at their cottage as their guest. During his stay with the Priels Shatz learns much about the rupture between his hosts and the rest of the delegation members; the strange way in which Priel is being exploited by Da-Silva the local of Portuguese descent, who is the local farm's manager; and of Hilla Priel obsessive fears of that powerful man.
Shatz falls in love with Hilla, and conducts a strange and short love affair with her, which ends up to his bitter disappointment when the Priels fly back home.
His evenings Shatz spends with Everon at the club, which is not far from Mouaka the capital; he is supposed to become Everon's bridge cards game partner, while he learns to his surprise that the club's bridge championship is Everon's highest aspiration. While
he accompanies Everon to the club, he meets Janine, the young daughter of one of Everon's closest French associates. His flirt with Janine gets on Everon's nerves. Everon envies him terribly and makes up a scene during the ride back at 100 miles per hour, almost overturns the car and endangers their lives in a heated dispute. That dramatic scene brings Shatz's salvation in its wake. He frees himself completely from Everon's patronage and gets the support of the embassy members, but has to face the consequences - a hearing at the embassy, before the ambassador who tries to solve in vain the dispute between Shatz and Everon.
On the verge of being sent back home Shatz tightens his relationships with the rest of embassy members, and with Janine and her father, against the ambassador's strict orders…
