Lisa St. Aubin de Terán traveled to Mozambique and, for the first time in her much-traveled life, felt at home—in a place "so remote that few have visited it since the time of Vasco da Gama." After three marriages and various affairs, she also fell in love. She set up a school and, together with her niece, the Teran Foundation, a non-profit organization to promote sustainable development in Southern Africa. A tale of new beginnings in a country of contrasts and challenges, this is her most inspiring story yet.
