In the first years of Kenyan independence, three young women return to the East African highlands where they shared a carefree childhood.

Hannah is struggling to preserve her heritage at Langani Farm, where a series of unexplained and violent attacks threaten her security and recent marriage. Sarah is studying wildlife, using her work as a salve for the death of her childhood sweetheart. Camilla, the international fashion icon, abandons her career in London and is drawn back to Kenya by her love for a charismatic hunter and safari guide.

But a secret hangs over Langani, overshadowing the friends' efforts to establish themselves in the volatile circumstances of a new African nation...

This superb sequel to Blood Sisters is a breathtaking saga of friendship, soaring hope and redemption.
