A Little Piece Of Africa.
The Departure (Vol.1)
A strong woman, a fascinating country, and a love that seems impossible
On a safari to Kenya in 1910, young Ivory falls in love with the land and its wildlife – and with a big-game hunter named Adrian Edgecumbe. While Ivory hopes he will give up his gory business for her, Adrian remains an adventurer through and through. Soon after the wedding, Ivy suspects that she is no more than a trophy for him. When war breaks out and Adrian is reported missing in action, Ivy takes the fortunes of the farm into her own hands.
In place of big game safaris, she begins to offer big game photo opportunities and wildlife observation. In addition, she restores land use rights to the African employees and ensures that they receive equal treatment. As she manages the land, she receives increasing support from Sanele Zulu, a black domestic servant and animal tracker. She has felt a special connection with him since childhood; he shares her love of animals and reveals the mysteries of his land to her. But what if their friendship should turn into love?
