LIONESS

Author: Katherine Scholes

Publisher: Penguin Australia

RRP: $32.95

THIS book is dedicated to the memory of George Adamson and his life was obviously the inspiration. That said it is a work of fiction about mothers and daughters.

Angel Kelly and her mother travel by camel through dusty northern Tanzania. Emma Lindberg, an Australian medical researcher, is on a pilgrimage to lie to rest her grief for her mother, who died in Tanzania whilst working for the United States Centre for Disease Control. Moyo, a lioness, is raising her cubs when she encounters Angel and assists her in her hour of need. When these lives intertwine an incredible saga ensues.

This is a spellbinding book filled with the essence of Africa and soul-searching lessons on motherhood.

Miss Scholes has a fluent style and her powers of description are superlative which makes this novel an enjoyable read.
