This was a wonderful story about discovering the strength within. Mandy sets off for Africa believing her world shattered after her fiancé dumps her for a younger woman. She has sworn off relationships, believing she will never trust again. While in Africa, she discovers a beautiful, enchanting world filled with wild animals, colorful birds and intriguing plant life. Her ruggedly attractive Zimbabwean guide (Peter) opens her up to a new world of adventure and love. Unfortunately, tragedy soon strikes. Mandy is abducted by ruthless men while visiting a secluded area of the outback. She makes a harrowing escape only to find herself lost and alone. As she embarks on a dangerous journey in search of Peter and civilization she must survive encounters with wild animals, dangerous plants and even a brush with Mother Nature all the while avoiding murderous poachers and trigger happy soldiers in the area.

Ms. Lockner does a wonderful job describing the exotic plant and animal life indigenous to Africa. She vividly depicts the beauty and danger present in the African outback to such a degree the reader feels like they are actually there. I would highly recommend this book to others and look forward to reading other titles by this author.
