What a joy this book was to read! I loved every page of it. I have a friend who has recently returned from a trip to Kenya and I have recognised parallels between some of her descriptions of the people and those in this book, despite the changes in time. I was not certain that I would enjoy the book when I bought it as I worried that being of a colonialist time the language might seem offensive to me. However this was not the case. I think there are some very wise words contained within this book and the strong voice of the narrative, whether you agree with what is said or not, is eloquent and compelling in its reasoning. I will be reading this book again.
