This is the book that got me hooked on reading for pleasure. It's a biggie (699 pages), but I was sad to finish such a wonderful story. In 1917 pioneer Dr. Grace Treverton arrives in Kenya determined to bring modern medicine to the natives. Her brother, Sr. Valentine Treverton has his own dream: to establish an agricultural empire. The siblings dreams collide with those of the African family that has lived on the land for generations. The beautiful descriptions of the land was wonderful...made me feel like I was there. A great read!
