Be careful what you wish for ...

Long ago, Andrew made a childhood wish and kept it in a silver box. When it finally comes true, he wishes it hadn't ...

Long ago, Ben made a promise and he had a dream: to travel to Africa to volunteer at a lion reserve. When he finally makes it, it isn't for the reasons he imagined ...

Ben and Andrew keep meeting in unexpected places and the intense relationship that develops seems to be guided by fate. Or is it? What if the very thing that draws them together is tainted by past secrets that threaten everything?

A dark, consuming drama that shifts from Zimbabwe to England and then back into the past, The Lion Tamer Who Lost is also a devastatingly beautiful love story, with a tragic heart.
