it was amazing
Read in November, 2006

Rachel was the daughter of a missionary doctor and a teacher in a mission hospital in British East Africa. She loves Africa and the Kikuyu and Masai tribes with whom her father and mother worked. When an influenza epidemic takes her mother and father she finds herself impersonating the daughter of an estranged ne'er-do-well son who ships her back to his father so she can ingratiate herself and win a reprieve for the man and his wife. But Rachel's nature and the intelligence of the old man ensure an unanticipated result.
