There are secrets about Sawubona (the reserve) just waiting to be revealed, and rumours too about a fabled white giraffe - a trophy for hunters everywhere. One night Martine, lonely and feeling slightly rebellious too, looks out of her window and see a young albino giraffe: silver, tinged with cinnamon in the moonlight. This is the beginning of her mysterious and magical adventures, and her discovery of her gift of healing and a secret valley that she travels to with the giraffe. There, she'll find clues about her past and future.
Above all, this is a heart-warming story, full of charm and atmosphere, and Martine's sheer delight in her giraffe friend and the fantastic landscape that is theirs to explore.
