When his wife dies in childbirth, Zambian conservationist Simon Hartley pours his life into raising his daughter and his orphan elephants. He has no time, or desire, to fall in love again. Or so he thinks.
Wanting to escape English society and postpone an arranged marriage, Lady Abigail Chadwick heads to Africa for a year to teach the children of the Good Shepherd Orphanage. Upon her arrival she is left stranded at Livingstone airport…until a reluctant Simon comes to her rescue.
Now only fears born of his loss, and secrets of the life she’s tried to leave behind, can stonewall their romance, budding in the heart of Africa.
“This well written African novella about orphans and orphan elephants is educational and inspiring. The setting is unique. Who doesn’t have a love for children and who doesn’t want to befriend an elephant? If you enjoy romances that are inspirational, with well developed characters, an international setting, and fast moving plot than this is for you. Marion Ueckermann is a talented inspirational writer. Her works do not disappoint.” ~ Renate Pennington
