The story takes place in a small village in England. Dr. Kate, Anita, and Mr. King worked for Caregivers International-a humanitarian organization that helped people in developing countries. The three were sent on a mission to a Western African Country that practiced the killing of twins.
In Africa, Anita and a local nurse both became pregnant and gave birth to twins. She entrusted her babies to the local nurse’s care and headed to South Africa to get a white woman who could help her bring back her babies. She taught that if the villagers saw two white women carrying two babies, they would never suspect that twin babies have been born in their land. The other women in her team were quite uncooperative because they were jealous of her; they could not have babies because of the polluted water they drank in Africa. While Anita was in South Africa, Dr. Kate who could not have babies, thanks to the polluted water she drank seized the opportunity to adopt one of Anita’s twin babies (Steve) in the midst of crises in the village. Mr. King adopted the other baby (not knowing that she was Anita’s daughter) and named her Emma. Nine years later, Mr. King died in the hospital after revealing part of what happened to Nina, a nurse in the local hospital. However, the whole truth was hidden from the rest of the members of the team, except Dr. Kate who watched the events as they unfolded. What followed were Dr. Kate’s efforts to keep the truth away from everyone else. However, she did not get so far, as her greed and cruelty gave her up. In the end, Anita was very glad to be reunited with her children. [mehr]
