Fourteen years after independence, the enduring childhood friendship of three women has carried them through times of violence and loss in Kenya, their chosen homeland.
Hannah Olsen and her husband Lars own Langani Farm and Safari Lodge where they struggle to protect their wildlife and land from poachers and corrupt officials.
But the developing relationship between their daughter and a young African boy with a terrifying legacy tests the strength of their family.
Sarah Singh, wildlife researcher and renowned photographer, is married to an Indian journalist.
However, their inability to have children puts Sarah's relationship with her husband and his family under increasing pressure. And Camilla Broughton Smith, international model and fashion designer, has given up a sparkling career to work with the charismatic safari guide Anthony Chapman, who has been injured in a tragic accident.
Yet his bitterness and fear of commitment threaten to shatter her dreams.
The final part of the Langani trilogy is an unforgettable story of courage and fortitude, of loyalty and murderous deceit, of friendship and betrayal, set against the backdrop of the beauty and wilderness of Kenya.
