Full synopsis

When up-and-coming hat maker Anna Peel gets divorced, she starts looking for something fulfilling to occupy her time and signs up to become a sponsor at a school on the banks of the Zambezi.

So begins her correspondence with precocious 10-year-old Henry Sissonga, Grace Nkomo the founder of Mwabonwa School and Dann Huismann, former Captain in the Royal Netherlands Army and now Geography Teacher. But when Dann’s apparent interest suddenly cools, Anna wonders if this is somehow linked to the mysterious death of his wife and son or perhaps is it his growing attachment to visiting Danish academic Dr Lottie Lund.

When an opportunity comes for Anna to travel to Zambia to teach design at the newly opened Twalumba Women’s Art Centre, she seizes the chance for adventure and personal fulfilment but must reconcile her commitment to the empowerment of the local village women with her growing affection for a man - damaged by war and personal tragedy - who clearly does not reciprocate her feelings.

Little does Anna know how much she will be drawn into this captivating world and how her arrival will change all their lives forever.
