Brought to Kenya from
England as a child and then abandoned by her mother, Beryl is raised by
both her father and the native Kipsigis tribe who share his estate. Her
unconventional upbringing transforms Beryl into a bold young woman with a
fierce love of all things wild and an inherent understanding of
nature’s delicate balance. But even the wild child must grow up, and
when everything Beryl knows and trusts dissolves, she is catapulted into
a string of disastrous relationships.
