In 1766, a ship docks at Bristol, England, disgorging a crate with two young elephants in poor health, but alive. A wealthy sugar merchant purchases them for his country estate and turns their care over to a young stable boy, Tom Page. It takes time for Tom and the two elephants to understand each other, but to the surprise of everyone on the estate, a remarkable bond is formed, and changes the lives of all who meet them.

I could not put the story down. Christopherson Nicholson had me from the get-go on this book. Enchanting storytelling at it's finest.

As an animal and especially elephant lover, I found this book interesting, well written and generally a good story. It wrapped up a bit quickly at the end but was very enjoyable.

I really enjoyed this touching story about a boy and the bond he develops with an elephant who he suddenly finds himself the keeper of. Great read.
