A RICHARD & JUDY BOOK CLUB PICK

'Thrilling...sun-soaked, gin-fuelled...A totally absorbing and compelling read.' Richard & Judy

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.

She was a daughter of Edwardian England, transplanted to Kenya as a young girl by parents who dreamed of life on an African farm. But by the time Beryl Markham was sixteen, that dream had fallen apart. Catapulted into a disastrous marriage, she emerged from its wreckage with one idea: to take charge of her own destiny.

Circling the Sun takes us from the brittle glamour of the 1920s Happy Valley set, fuelled by gin and adultery, to the loneliness of life as a scandalous divorcee; from the spectacular beauty of the Kenyan landscape to the manicured lawns of Nairobi's Muthaiga Club. Dazzlingly beautiful, brave, passionate and reckless, Beryl is an unforgettable heroine, whose tragic loss in love compels her to pursue her own dream - of flight, and freedom.

Great adventure

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.
