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.'

    Katherine Scholes

    Katherine Scholes was born in Tanzania, East Africa, the daughter of a missionary doctor and an artist. She has fond memories of travelling with her parents and three siblings on long safaris to remote areas where her father operated a clinic from his Land Rover. When she was ten, the family left Tanzania, moving first to England and then settling permanently in Tasmania. As an adult, Katherine moved to Melbourne with her film-maker husband. The two worked together for many years, writing books and making films. They have now returned to Tasmania, where they live on the edge of the sea with their two sons. Katherine is the author of four international bestsellers: The Rain Queen, Make Me An Idol, The Stone Angel, The Hunter's Wife andThe Lioness.
