Love in the Driest Season ~ A Family Memoir
by Neely Tucker
This is a non-fiction account of a journalist and his wife that move to Zimbabwe in 1997 and their journey to adopt a little baby girl who had been abandoned on the day of her birth.
For my friends in the "adoption community" this will put all the ups and downs into perspective. For others, this inspirational story will give you a little glimpse into the reality, the pain and the brilliance of International Adoption.
