The Hunter's Wife

The Hunter's Wife

By  Katherine Scholes

‘Out of Africa meets White Mischief… a bittersweet, entertaining mix of Hollywood, obsessive love and the unbearable longing for what is not possible.’ Australian Women’s Weekly Book of the Month

From the internationally bestselling author of Make Me an Idol, The Rain Queen and The Stone Angel.

Mara, a young Australian, marries a big-game hunter who lives on the spectacular grasslands of East Africa. Three years later, their safari lodge is in trouble - and so, too, is their marriage.

When a Hollywood movie crew descends to film on location, Mara knows this could be the lodge's salvation. She thrives on her sudden responsibility and independence, but she also finds herself dangerously attracted to the film's leading man.

From an internationally bestselling author comes this poignant love story set against the breathtaking backdrop of Tanzania. The Hunter's Wife is a powerful and moving story of a young woman's heartfelt struggle to reconcile duty and desire.
