Synopsis

A heartbreaking, breathtakingly beautiful love story with a tragedy at its heart, from the critically acclaimed author of Maria in the Moon.



`Beech eloquently conveys their feelings and longings and sets atmospheric, vividly drawn scenes that transport the reader from grey and damp England to the searing heat of the lion reserve ...The Lion Tamer Who Lost will touch the most hardhearted of readers with its persuasive, well-drawn and memorable characters' Daily Express



'A devastating, tender and powerful story love story, beautifully and bravely told. You will lose your heart to this book. I adored it' Miranda Dickinson



Be careful what you wish for...

Long ago, Andrew made a childhood wish, and kept it in a silver box. When it finally comes true, he wishes he hadn't...



Long ago, Ben made a promise and he had a dream: to travel to Africa to volunteer at a lion reserve. When he finally makes it, it isn't for the reasons he imagined...



Ben and Andrew keep meeting in unexpected places, and the intense relationship that develops seems to be guided by fate. Or is it? What if the very thing that draws them together is tainted by past secrets that threaten everything?



A dark, consuming drama that shifts from Zimbabwe to England, and then back into the past, The Lion Tamer Who Lost is also a devastatingly beautiful love story, with a tragic heart...
