There are times when I can sympathize with the main character in this book over her misunderstanding of certain words. I hear so many thinks incorrectly; however, I have always blamed in on my hearing. Anyway this was a good book. It is a bit of a love story, but not much. Mostly its about a divorcee picking up the pieces of her life and finding out what she is really about. The most annoying part of the book was the fact that she did keep misunderstanding words and phrases and I would sometimes have a very difficult time trying to figure out what the actual wording should have been. Although most of the time the reader let you know what was actually said, I struggled to reconcile the word or phrase with what she thought she heard. After a while, I just wished she omit those misunderstandings.
Overall, it was enjoyable.
i read this book while living in africa. it was very charming and a fun read. i really appreciated how she didn't over humanize the elephants, but also discussed the hardships that wildlife in africa are facing these days, as well as the people of africa. light read, but enjoyable and fun.
Struggled to finish. Story more about main character and her run of the mill problem's not to mention the far-fetched events that happened in the story. The life and death issues dealt with by the African elephants and their human counterparts would have been a more interesting story.
The story line was cute but relatable.
Neely. How can you not like her
No I haven't
Neely. I loved her problems and following her as she worked through them.
I hope audible gets her other books
