About the Author
Angelina Kalahari has worked for over twenty-five years as a professional actress, stage director and operatic soprano, performing around the world. She appeared on many diverse platforms, such as opening the busking scheme on London Underground to a recital at the Royal Opera House and everything in between. She holds degrees in drama and opera and in 2005 she received recognition for her contribution to the music, culture and economy of the UK from Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. Angelina has always regarded herself as a storyteller, either through music or through acting and directing. She honed her storytelling skills from a young age, writing and telling stories to her siblings at bedtime. It became a habit through the years. She has many finished novels, children’s stories and plays. The Healing Touch is her debut published novel and the first in the Love Beyond Reason series. George And The Gargoyle Who Lived In The Garden is her first middle-grade novel, again the first in a series. Born in Namibia, and having lived all over the world, she currently lives in London, UK, with her husband, her fur cat daughter a rapidly diminishing population of house spiders, and a smallish herd of dust bunnies.

I would recommend this book. A really good read.
But this is an author worth reading and I am looking forward to her next publications.
In fact, it was the (dare I say it?) ladylike delicacy of feeling that singled out this book for me, given that it also manages to be sexy and steamy, but never torrid.or tasteless..
There are heart-wrenching moments such as the death of a mother elephant and her orphan baby's anguish, with ensuing violence and near- death of Luca in the aftermath surrounding the poachers. Death due to cancer is also imminent in the character of Aunt Elsie through the second half of the book, and Naomi's fear of abandonment, as she had already been orphaned once as a child, echoes the elephant's experience . The attachment of grandmother and grand daughter is surprisingly intense and moving..
The author has brought her great love of her native Namibia to the story, and the scenery in the Namib desert is hugely characterful and wondrous.
Fortunately for the reader, all the characters' desires are satisfied at the end of the book. This couple has the idyllic start in married life that most of us would likely envy - legacy, wealth, great chemistry and true devotion. What more could they wish for?? I wonder what is in store for them....
