A breathtaking story about duty and desire, and about following your heart, wherever in the world it may lead you.

From the internationally bestselling author – over two million books sold worldwide.
Kitty Hamilton arrives in Tanganyika with high hopes for her new life. An exciting adventure halfway across the world could be just what she and Theo need to recover from the scandal that almost tore them apart.

But in this wild and foreign land, her dreams soon begin to unravel. And there is much more at stake than her quest to be a perfect wife. As old wounds resurface and new passions ignite, Kitty and Theo confront emotions that push them beyond the boundaries of all that they know and believe in.

A deeply moving story about the struggle between duty and desire – and the need to follow your heart, wherever in the world it may lead you.
