Sally considers herself fortunate. As a lady’s maid to Lady Duff Gordon, she has come up the ranks from being an orphan without skills to having a secure job of some prestige. When Lady Duff Gordon becomes ill with a lung disease, her doctor suggests she relocate to the warm, dry climate of Egypt. Sally can scarcely believe her luck in being asked to go along to care for her lady. Sally craves adventure and having spent her precious free time at the British Museum studying the Egyptian culture, she knows what a wonderful opportunity is ahead.
Conor Grennan didn’t set out to be a hero. In fact, the only reasons he volunteered to spend three months helping out in a Nepalese orphanage was that 1) it would be a great way to pick up women (Who could resist that resume item?) and 2) it made him sound less selfish to his family and friends as he outlined his plan to blow through his entire savings accumulated over 8 years in the working world since college graduation.
