I thought this would be a boring read, but it was quite the contrary.
What a remarkable woman she was. I found this book gave a good insight into a bygone age of how the privliged class lived. I think there's a lot of lessons in there somewhere. Yes, it really was an unreal world for the titled and privileged few, but having read similar books of the rich and titled in an eara of Empire, I think what money, rank and privilege gave them, they lost out on the bigger picture of life. For all they had, none of them seemed contended or happy, and NEVER satisfied.Definitely worth a read.

The Life of Beryl Markham was a brilliant read. I found her life story fascinating. As I had read the life story of Denis Finch Hatton & Karen Blixen I felt I had to read Beryl Markham's. What a life and what an extraordinary woman. It is very well written by Mary LovellI.

This biography compliments and adds greatly to Beryl Markham's wonderful "West With The Night". Both are must reads. The amazing reprint history of both (particularly the latter) says it all.

I enjoyed this book (although towards the end it had rather a lot of detail about horse breeding). But it was a good read and did capture the character of Beryl Markham very well - I felt I really had a good idea of her life and times by the end of it.
