Sorry, don't quite know if I am doing this right? I am looking for a book, but I cannot remember the author, title or names of characters. :(

The guy is a millionaire cattleman/rancher with a sister (Susan?) who is very independent and feisty?

I think the woman's parents were missionaries? And she grew up in the South America or the Rainforest?

The woman ate out of the communal stew pots and has eaten monkey parts.

She grew up w/o electricity or and modern conveniences.

She has long waist-length hair.

The millionaire and his sister watch the woman soothe an upset baby, but she didn't speak English while doing so!

The millionaire said she was "A woman out of time" or something like that.

Was published between 1975 and 1997. Is NOT a regency/historical book.

Thanks for the help.
