'An enchanting comedy of bird-watching, love and African life.' WOMAN & HOME
Rose Mbikwa: leader of the Tuesday morning bird walk of the East African Ornithological Society, and light of quiet, balding Mr Malik's life.
If only the path of true love ran smooth. Not even his friends at the Asadi Club know of his love, but just as he plans to ask Rose to the Hunt Ball, old school bully Harry Kahn arrives in town with Rose in hid sights.
When Mr Malik blurts out his feelings, a wager is set: whoever sees the most birds on a week will ask Rose to the ball. But filthy rich Harry is everything Mr Malik is not. With boats, planes and guides helping him to the choicest bird-watching spots in Kenya, can Mr Malik stand a chance?
'A delightful comedy... It invites comparison to The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency books, but it's original and, if anything, has more depth' DAILY MAIL
