Quite enjoyed this book. It's full of wonderful feelings between the main characters, Jenny (a scientist) and Lucy (the half-human she finds in Africa). Thrown together by war, the two females bond and become family in spite of the many ways Lucy is not quite like other humans. The story really picks up the pace when the government finds out about Lucy and serious trouble ensues for both Jenny and Lucy. Sad but also satisfying, I would highly recommend this book.
