I received a copy of this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

"The Promise of Rain" is a lovely book to read. The simple story line is enhanced by humour, sadness, and the complexity of human nature.

The (human) main characters almost take a backseat when their animal counterparts are on the scene, and it works so well! Ambosi and Bakhari in particular come alive just as much as Anna, Jack, Pippa and the rest, sometimes more so.

Rula Sinara writes like an old hand. Scenes come to life vividly and the characters are portrayed in a very realistic way - you can't help but care about what happens. I'm sure readers will be split 50/50 when it comes to deciding what is best for young Pippa.
