In this funny, heartwarming story, the author of the beloved novelHorseplaypresents another smart, memorable heroine and the animals--and men--she loves.

She was happy when Matt, her veterinarian husband, told her he was getting a collie; she liked dogs. He had saidcolleague, to help with his busy practice. The problems start when the pretty blonde "collie" calls Neelie to say that she is pregnant with Matt's child. Sent into a tailspin, Neelie throws herself into her horse training business until she discovers that Matt is part of a group planning to leave for Zimbabwe to rescue a badly injured elephant. Thinking she could win Matt's heart again, Neelie manages to get included. The trip is dangerous, exhilarating, and revealing. Neelie learns about herself as a wife and a woman. Back at home, she discovers secrets everywhere--with her parents, with Matt, even in training an elephant.
