Rubbing Stones by Nancy Burkey

Rubbing StonesRubbing Stones by Nancy Burkey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a terrific debut novel that I found very hard to put down. Dr. Jane O'Neil a psychiatry professor in the US has been having difficulties with her teenaged son, Michael, who seems to be going off the rails a bit. Desperate to connect with her son and help him she books the family in for a trip to Africa to help at a medical clinic. The two boys, Michael and Jake, talk her into taking them on a rafting trip for a few days before they begin at the clinic. They set off to enjoy their adventure.

Meanwhile in Botswana, another family finds themselves in problems when their oldest son is falsely arrested in Zimbabwe. The younger brother and sister decide that they must go and help their brother.

These two unlikely families come together in an unpredictable way.

I will not ruin the story by giving it away here in this review. If you like adventure with a few crocodiles thrown in, you will love this book.

An excellent read.
