Loved this book from the first page. Interesting and strong main character with a ery close connection to "Out of Africa". Cried and laughed, great insight to the colonial times in Kenia and its breathtaking scenery but often heart breaking times of the settlers.
Circling the Sun
The author of The Paris Wife takes us to the heart of another true story: set in 1920s colonial Kenya, Circling the Sun is about an unforgettable woman who lives by nobody's rules but her own.
