This was a pretty good book, it's set back in 1919, and it's about a girl named Rachel raised in Africa with parents who both work as docters, but then her parents die of influenza. She's left alone in a brick and mud house, with only the lions on the savannas and their roars as her lulaby. Then a greedy family whose daughter just died of influenza steals her away. They tell her that she must go to england to see Valerey's (the girl who died) rich grandfather, and pretend she's Valerey to get the grandfathers inheritence. She wants to just stay and live with the native people of Africa, who her family befriended long ago. But if she goes to them now Valereys parents will have them killed to get to Rachel. Now Rachel must go to England to pretend to be someone she's not. She may never go back to the grassy feilds of Africa.
