Celeste Reed was not only facing an arranged marriage, but a completely new life in Africa. As the daughter of a gamekeeper, her new husband treated her with disdain as he kept a mistress and was not concerned with her happiness. Celeste soon finds herself alone with an infant son, a farm and servants to keep working.
Captain Edward Waverly, wounded in the war, shows up on Celeste’s doorstep needing a place to recuperate for a few days. He is fascinated and full of admiration for this brave beautiful woman who shows him such kindness.
Although Edward only spent a few days in Celeste’s household, they grew to be quite close. When he was called back to England, she did not expect to ever see him again. She also did not expect to care so much.
Samburu Hills is a very sweet and genuine story. Celeste is the ultimate heroine. Instead of giving up, she takes what is given to her and becomes successful to take care of herself and her son. Ms. Mueller’s description of Africa is so vivid that it becomes real to the reader. Samburu Hills is an absolute gem of a historical romance.
