In My Opinion…
I love to travel, but I’m also a realist and know that there is no way finances and time will allow me to see everything I want to. So, the next best thing is escaping to new and exciting places within the pages of a book.
The Twin Test is several books into Rula Sinara’s From Kenya, With Love series, but it’s the first one I’ve been able to pick up. And what an adventure ride it was!
From the wildlife (including an elephant rescue) to the dangers to the environment due to the practices of an oil company, there is a lot to absorb in this story. And I haven’t even mentioned the eleven-year-old twins who are intently focused on driving away outsiders.
It’s going to take a special person to get through to these two girls who have already lost too much and their father. But Pippa is willing to take the challenge head-on. She’s straight-shooting and doesn’t mind stepping on toes while a free spirit whose heart for the children of the Masai villages is admirable.
In Dax’s determination to keep a deathbed promise to his wife, he’s lost sight of what his daughters need most from him. When Pippa agrees to watch the girls, his world is shaken in more ways than he could have imagined. But will Pippa leave them all behind when she finds out why he’s in Africa?
A fantastic read that brought me to another world. One where nature rules lives and love conquers loss and fear. I hope to return to Sinara’s Africa soon.
