'The Nile, the white fountains of the Nile...' Her father's last words haunt Harriet Latimer long after she has been rescued from the Nubian desert which they had been attempting to cross. Her rescuer, the insolent and devastatingly handsome Raoul Beauvais, is a French explorer and geographer with the same objective -- to find the source of the Nile in Africa. Despite Harriet's requests, Raoul swears that women have place on his expedition, but he makes an exception for the beautiful Circassian Narinda. Can Harriet realise her father's dream and make the journey that European woman has attempted before?
