A moving novel that asks what it really means to be a family - and what it takes to be a mother. From the internationally bestselling author of The Hunter's Wife and The Rain Queen.

When Emma Lindberg travels to a remote corner of Africa to visit the research station where her mother died years ago, all she wants is to finally lay her grief to rest. Instead, she finds herself caught up in the search for a missing child.

Together with Maasai veterinary surgeon Daniel Oldeani, she sets out on a journey deep into the dusty wilderness of northern Tanzania.

What they discover there will shake to the core Emma's beliefs about how the world works. A little girl's life has been saved by the extraordinary actions of a mother lioness.

And that is only the beginning . . .
