Anne  Jacobs, Leah  Bach - Island of a Thousand Stars


The untamed savannah and exotic islands shelter the secret of her true origin…

Berlin, 1913. Paula von Dahlen's mother has passed away, and when the young woman goes through her mother's things she discovers a faded photograph taken in German East Africa. Is the man in the picture the father she never knew?

Paula plucks up her courage, and travels to Tanga to find out. There, she meets the young journalist Tom Naumann, and with his help she sets out on the photograph's trail – which takes her to Mount Kilimanjaro and all the way to Zanzibar. Meanwhile, war breaks out in Europe, and when Tom is sent to the front, Paula is left on her own in the wilderness …

"Leah Bach writes wonderfully gripping stories that you can read again and again."
