Two women, bound by a shocking event, drawn to a vast and beautiful country they cannot forget. Kate Carrington has cut all ties with Africa, the land of her birth. Her past is buried alongside her missionary parents, the last reminders locked safely away in the attic. But when a mysterious woman moves in next door, Kate's carefully constructed world is torn apart. Annah Mason has led an extraordinary life - one that has taken her from a hospital in Langali to the company of rainmakers deep in the Tanzanian bush. Her connection with the Waganga people has brought her the great love of her life, and freedom beyond her dreams. Yet she carries with her a painful secret. Now, the time has come for her to tell her story - to finally set Kate free. The international bestseller that has captured hearts the world over. 'This most moving book, whose every breath is a love-song for Africa and her people, is a faultlessly woven cloth.' LE MONDE (FRANCE) 'One to keep you reading late into the night.' WEST AUSTRALIAN 'Beautifully written, lively and sympathetic... an adventurous and highly entertaining read.' BOOKSHOW (GERMANY)
