This story gives the reader a wonderful glimpse into eastern Africa in the early 20th century. Although the story is fictional, the author drew on the memories of a missionary physician and his wife who served in Rwanda for many years. The result is an enchanting story that I found difficult to set down. A great read for anyone 10 years and older.
