Synopsis

The only female student in Cambridge University’s medical program, Jane Porter is far more comfortable in a lab coat dissecting corpses than she is in a corset and gown sipping afternoon tea. A budding paleoanthropologist, Jane dreams of traveling the globe in search of fossils that will prove the evolutionary theories of her scientific hero, Charles Darwin.When dashing American explorer Ral Conrath invites Jane and her father to join an expedition deep into West Africa, she can hardly believe her luck. Africa is every bit as exotic and fascinating as she has always imagined, but Jane quickly learns that the lush jungle is full of secrets—and so is Ral Conrath. When danger strikes, Jane finds her hero, the key to humanity’s past, and an all-consuming love in one extraordinary man: Tarzan of the Apes.Jane is the first version of the Tarzan story written by a woman and authorized by the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate. Its publication marks the centennial of the original Tarzan of the Apes.“This stunning sequel to Tarzan is outstanding in its scope and pageantry.… Suzan Crowley is magnificent with her portrayals of the narrator and the protagonist. Her voice develops the Tarzan personality as she teaches him to speak English, and we hear him progress from tentative childish pronunciations to mastering entire sentences and concepts.… For anyone who grew up with the original Tarzan and for all the new legions of fantasy and sci-fi lovers.” —AudioFile
