Listening for Lions is a book I would recommend to anyone of any age. This book contains a story line that not only instructs the reader on fictional, but all together realistic historic events, but is also a page turner. Every page will leave you wanting to read more so that you are incapable of putting the book down.

This is a good historical novel for middle-grade readers. The young protagonist is well-drawn and her story provides some interesting information about post WW1 Africa and the Spanish flu pandemic.

"Synopsis" by , Historical fiction with a wicked twist.

Listening for Lions is a breathtaking story of tragedy, deception, and triumph against all odds. National Book Award–winning author Gloria Whelan sets this richly historical coming–of–age adventure in British East Africa in the year 1918.

This irresistible novel entangles an orphaned girl in a deceit filled plot. Young Rachel Sheridan is made to leave her beloved Africa for England, where she must pose as the deceased daughter of a nefarious couple in an effort to gain them an enormous inheritance. Her irrepressible spirit and extraordinary wit turn her from victim to heroine in a surprising and empowering tale of a remarkable young woman.

"Synopsis" by , Africa is the only home Rachel Sheridan has ever known. But when influenza strikes down her missionary parents, she is left vulnerable prey to her family's wicked neighbors. Surrounded by greed and lies, Rachel is entangled in a criminal scheme and sent to England, where she is forced into a life of deception. Like the lion, she must be patient and strong, awaiting the moment when she can take control of her own fate—and find her way home again at last.
