Author: Ruth Harris
Renny Kudrow, Director of the Kihali Animal Orphanage in Kenya, is an authority on animal communication. But human communication? Not so much, thinks Starlite Higgins, the new vet he has just hired over the objections of Kihali’s Board of Directors. She finds him prickly, remote, critical.
ZURI—the word means “beautiful” in Swahili—begins with the rescue of an orphaned rhino calf, Zuri, and almost fails when Starlite suddenly panics. Renny fears he has made a mistake hiring her and does not hide his disappointment. Starlite, anxious to please and accustomed to professional success, tries unsuccessfully to win his approval. Each hides a terrible secret and, despite their growing attraction, Renny and Starlite remain at odds.
Renny’s expertise in interpreting animal thought and emotion combine with Starlite’s medical skills to help heal Zuri’s physical and psychological wounds. Gradually, the orphaned baby rhino overcomes her traumatic memories, and, so, too, Renny and Starlite face their own scarred pasts. As the dedicated scientist and the brave, resourceful vet fall in love with the irresistible Zuri, their emotional walls fall away. Freed from the anchors of the past, they find it more and more difficult to resist their deep feelings for each other.
Based on extensive research, the novel’s triggering event is the near-extinction of Africa’s black rhino. Rhino horn is now more valuable than gold and the illicit trade in wild animals is third only to the smuggling of drugs and weapons. Current scientific findings about animal intelligence and communication underlie ZURI’s plot twists and turns—elephants (also at the orphanage) are far more intelligent than once thought and rhinos, with their heightened sense of smell and hearing, have extraordinary memories and bond closely with humans.
ZURI draws on the power of human-animal relationships, the heroic accomplishments of African animal orphanages, and the people, foreign and Kenyan, drawn to careers involving the care and conservation of wild animals. Filled with drama and danger that lead to a happy ending, ZURI will appeal to a wide audience of readers who love animals and have personally experienced the intense, mystical bond between humans and animals.
ZURI contains no sex or cursing and is appropriate for adult and YA readers.
