Overview

One woman, two brothers, and the man whose dark obsession threatens to destroy them all…

Ruth Bellalfontaine fled her home and married a man she didn’t love to escape the stunning betrayal of the woman who should have loved her best and the clutches of the man who will stop at nothing to possess her. Deep in the jungles of Africa, she immerses herself in the work of her new husband’s family, the study of the mountain gorilla. But will distance be enough to keep her safe? In a country where survival depends on animal instinct, can she forge a future with Malone Corday, even as all her instincts pull her toward his brother?

Brett Corday gave up his eye for his brother. What is he willing to sacrifice for his brother’s wife? Carrying the weight of his brother, the reputation of the Corday Foundation and his love for a forbidden woman on his shoulders, Brett seeks peace by holding up in his compound doing language studies with the orphaned gorilla, Cee Cee. But a devil’s bargain with his brother, a stunning betrayal, and a bloodbath in the Virungas forces him to examine everything he’d held to be true. Follow Ruth and Brett on a stunning journey through the dark continent to the savage beauty of a place that can break your heart and then put it back together.

A rare find! What an awesome book. Rape, betrayal, unrequited love. The book has it all. The love scenes were well written, without graphic detail. I could feel what they were feeling it was so beautifully written. Agreat book. An accomplished writer. It was written in 1995, perhaps that explains the richness of this book

This is a wonderful, complex story with great characters, some really beautiful descriptions of Africa and a richness of detail about the silverback gorilla that shows the author did her research. It's a long book, and Ruth's relationships with her mother and her mother-in-law are explored as deeply as those with her husband Malone and his brother Brett. The themes of the story are dark, but the author provides comic relief with the nurse Lorena, and the gorilla Cee Cee. I laughed out loud at the scenes of Lorena chasing the buffalo from her garden and the many antics of Cee Cee. This is one of the most satisfying reads I've had in a long time.
