Lisa St Aubin de Teran travelled to Mozambique and, for the first time in her much-travelled 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. From the acclaimed author of THE HACIENDA, Mozambique Mysteries is a story of new beginnings in a country of contrasts and challenges - her most inspiring story yet.
