Chapter after chapter, readers will become engaged and intrigued as the storyline unravels." --Elizabeth Wilder, Eyewitness News, WNCT TV, Greenville, North Carolina A Diamond in the Rough is a tale of triumph, tragedy, deceit, and love that spans three generations and two continents. Journey with the McCartney family from the rugged hunting grounds of the Colorado mountains, where one can hear snow melting from the trees, to the spectacular countryside of South Africa, where one can hear the elephants tromping over trees. Their thriving safari business is adventure enough for Matt, but his sister Jess is seeking more. When she returns to the States to live out her altruistic ideologies, however, she becomes entangled in a sinister plot
While a cruise ship with Ann written across the bow floats unassumingly on the ocean waves, a band of pirates speeds towards them. As the pirates get closer, they can see women running towards cannons and machine guns that seemed to appear out of nowhere. The machine guns fired with pin point accuracy and the pirates could see they were out gunned and tried to run. But Ann, the cruise ship had become Ann the Raider, and she surely was "A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing."
