Description - The Lioness, by Katherine Scholes

From the internationally bestselling author of The Hunter's Wife and The Rain Queen. When Emma Lindberg travels to a remote corner of Africa to visit the research station where her mother died years ago, all she wants is to finally lay her grief to rest. Instead, she finds herself caught up in the search for a missing child. Together with Maasai veterinary surgeon Daniel Oldeani, she sets out on a journey deep into the dusty wilderness of northern Tanzania. What they discover there will shake to the core Emma's beliefs about how the world works. A little girl's life has been saved by the extraordinary actions of a mother lioness. And that is only the beginning . . . 'An incredible saga . . . this is a spellbinding book filled with the essence of Africa and soul-searching lessons on motherhood.' CHRONICLE 'A great summer read . . . It made me want to jump on the next plane to Tanzania.' BOOKSELLER+PUBLISHER 'An exotic setting, a superbly crafted narrative and more than a passing look at what makes us human.' WEEKLY TIMES

When she was ten, the family left Tanzania, moving first to England and then settling permanently in Tasmania. As an adult, Katherine moved to Melbourne with her film-maker husband. The two worked together for many years, writing books and making films. They have now returned to Tasmania, where they live on the edge of the sea with their two sons. Katherine is the author of four international bestsellers- The Rain Queen, Make Me An Idol, The Stone Angel, The Hunter's Wife and The Lioness. katherinescholes.com
