“ second book in a series of 4. The continuing story of Monica and her two adopted sons as they move from Johannesburg to a small town called Lady Helen on the west coast of South Africa along with the housekeeper Francina. Monica starts to run the newspaper for the town and had to go up against a land developer, trying to displace quite a few of the poorer families.”
