N sexual description this line suits me well What I noticed most is the fact that there is a roundness to this story THE PROMISE OF RAIN There is an entrancing African setting a cast of characters not just the focus couple There s also the most gorgeous little girl who jumps off the page and laughs at you You just want to scoop her up and bury your nose in her corkscrew curly hair That s how real the writing wasAnna Bekker runs an elephant rescue centre in the wilderness of Kenya A dedicated vetinary doctor she is studying the habits of elephants and bringing much needed relief to those elephants who have been damaged psychologically and physically as a result of attacks by poacherswhich have hurt them and illed and wounded their loved ones She is supported by a dedicated team of Africans who are both loyal and proud A single mother Niara lives with Anna and both mothers support each other in the job of rearing their two pre schoolers Both infants are lovingly tended having been breastfed for a long time initially and are carefully tutored We Rascal know that Niara hasn t had it easy but has found a refuge to rear her son along with Anna s little one But who is the father of Anna s little Pippa RoseHe arrives soon enough As a sort of inspector sent by the chief benefactor of the project to check that the funds are going to good use His shock at seeing his ex girlfriend with a child who is old enough to be his fills him with amazement wonder and possessiveness Recognizing the tiny girl as his own by the way her age fits in and also by her strong physical resemblance to him Jack vows to get his daughter back to America at any cost He s furious with Anna for failing to inform him that he was a parent Both parents want to share the custody but both want to be the chief caretaker Anna has worked close to nature and being a mother shenows that the mother child bond is something Jack will probably never understand Jack for his part wants his child back in the relative safety of the USA in a pink Barbie bedroom in his apartment playing with his sister s Another Day of Life kids after school Anna he decides can visit whenever she wants Anna argues that Pippa has hands on loving care at all times and that bringing her to the United States and dropping her into day care while he works his customary long hours will have a detrimental affect on the child s emotional wellbeing As the couple approach the US Consular Services in Nairobi to make their daughter s passport one wonders how this deadlock can be resolvedAnna and Pippa s visit to the USA to visit with little Pippa s grandparents provides the opportunity to explore what made Jack and Anna the people they have become Anna s parents miserable marriage and messy divorce looks like the reason she didn t break the news to Jack earlier She didn t want Jack to marry her for the baby s sake not wanting to give her parents history a chance to repeat itself Jack was an unwanted child of drug addicts who thankfully eventually found himself with a loving family That s why he doesn t want to lose his only child that sense of bloodinship I could feel Anna s pain Her sense of abandonment by her own father and her reluctance to accept her stepmom I could feel Jack s desperation too as he tries to win his child overThis story tackles uite a few issues The issue of how a background of dysfunctional family life can steel a person s heart against giving a marriage commitment I also found the story extremely realistic In that Anna and Jack didn t find any time to spend together rebonding sexually before deciding to get married It s a sad but true fact for couples who are madly in love while the presence of a young child is the greatest joy it is also the greatest sex prevention techniue ever I don t What Would You Like?
