Rachel Sheridan loves Africa and living there with her father who is a doctor missionary and her mother who is a teacher missionary. But when they both die of the influenza, Rachel becomes a victim of an evil scheme. She is whisked away from East Africa to England where is forced to pose as someone she is not.
Can she expose the evil scheme and return to Africa?
Very well written. Ms. Whelan keeps the plot moving yet somehow weaves in the beauty of God's creation in both Africa and in the English countryside. She also covers many years of Rachel's life in succinct yet interesting manner.
