Book Review: Unicorn Tracks
Thursday, November 10, 2016
Author: Julia Embers
Summary from Goodreads: After a savage attack drives her from her home, sixteen-year-old Mnemba finds a place in her cousin Tumelo’s successful safari business, where she quickly excels as a guide. Surrounding herself with nature and the mystical animals inhabiting the savannah not only allows Mnemba’s tracking skills to shine, it helps her to hide from the terrible memories that haunt her.
Mnemba is employed to guide Mr. Harving and his daughter, Kara, through the wilderness as they study unicorns. The young women are drawn to each other, despite that fact that Kara is betrothed. During their research, they discover a conspiracy by a group of poachers to capture the Unicorns and exploit their supernatural strength to build a railway. Together, they must find a way to protect the creatures Kara adores while resisting the love they know they can never indulge
When Julia reached out to me about her book, I knew this was a book that sounded very interesting. I am happy to report that it didn't disappoint. As a little girl, I remember having a toy unicorn (from Lisa Frank) and all of the magic it had. This book kept the magic alive in me and I am so glad.
This book was one of love. The women in the story cannot be together, but you can feel the connection every time they interact. I appreciated that element of this book.
The plot of the story was interesting and well written. I enjoyed it very much. Thank you for the opportunity.
