The Avoidable Orphan: a Child of Africa Story
by TM Clark

Recently widowed Rodger de Jonge feels lost. He fears that he's losing his bond with his daughters, Peta and Courtney. He's a man of the bush, and coping with 'girlie feelings was always Helene's department, not his.

When an orphaned baby elephant is found, Rodger sees an opportunity that might help him reconnect with his children. But saving the elephant will go against the normal conservation methods he's familiar with and it will require a new approach in an attempt to save the baby and reintroduce it in to a wild herd.

Can Rodger manage to help save the baby elephant against the odds, and reconnect with his daughters in time?

TM Clark's Bio

I was born in Zimbabwe, and have lived in South Africa and England, but now call Australia home. I'm married and have two sons.

When not running around after the men in my life, I get to enjoy my hobbies, which include boating, reading, sewing, travel, gardening, and lunch with my author friends, (not necessarily in that order!)

I'm passionate about different cultures and wildlife, the wilder places in the world and literacy.
