Stevepug ,

A story of love

A strangely compelling and unexpectedly moving story. Tom Page, the incredibly loyal and faithful elephant keeper down through the sad years, tells us his tale of unshakable devotion to his dear, loving and wise Jenny. Is it an allegory of slavery? Of the human heart hiding in unrecognized places? I do not know, but it left me transfixed and deeply affected. A wonderful read.
