'This is a book that belongs on a shelf with the memoirs of Olive Schreiner, Elspeth Huxley, Beryl Markham – and with Out of Africa Judith Thurman
Ms Gallmann captures perfectly the magic of Kenya, creating an almost overwhelming picture of beauty and drama, pain and joy, death and resurrection . . . Vividly reminiscent of Isak Dinesen (New York Times)
From the Back Cover
As a child, Kuki Gallmann discovered the singular magic of Africa. As an adult, she emigrates to Africa with her new husband, Paolo, and her son, Emanuele. Although it is the place she has waited for all her life, she never dreamed of the pain, passion, joy and hardship that were hidden in its vast beauty.
