Under the Baobab Tree by Jane Chidgey

Book Description

From Melbourne career woman to 'Lady of the Lodge' in Africa ...A heartwarming memoir about having the courage to follow love and change your life, no matter what your age It's never too late to start a new life ...Single, independent and successful, Jane Chidgey was settled in her Melbourne routine. Her life was predictable, and she liked it that way. Falling in love was not part of her plan, especially when it was with her new boss - a South African, twenty years her senior. When the romance turns serious, Jane swaps the boardroom for a sun-baked farm in Africa where she is welcomed by a cast of endearing locals. The challenges of her new home include managing wildlife, navigating cultural differences and learning to let go of her rigid need for order. As the majesty of the savannah and the rhythms of her new existence take hold, she finds herself doing things which once seemed unimaginable, like re-introducing cheetahs to the wild. But tears are never far from the surface and in the unpredictable world of AIDS-riven South Africa, Jane must summon all her reserves of strength and adaptability to cope with devastating loss. Under the Baobab Tree is Jane Chidgey's moving story of regeneration, transformation and falling in love - not just with a man but with a way of life too.
