Such an interesting, compelling story which captured my imagination so much so that I am planning a visit to northern Zambia in February 2017 to visit and stay in the Africa House.

A wonderful story of an English gentleman who built a fabulous mansion in the wilds of Northern Rhodesia employing at one time up to a thousand local natives plus supporting independence for Northern Rhodesia. Achievements during his lifetime are amazing. Couldn't believe who he married, sounded fictiontional , had to check it out on Wikipedia.

Having been brought up in Zambia I have a special connection to this book and have bought several copies to give to members of my family. This man has to be admired and shame on those who took advantge of him.

Made me feel a part of history. Enjoyed the read and would recommend it to others interested in African history.

An astonishing and truly inspiring tale. Christina Lamb probably didn't know the effect she would have on the fate of this house when she took up the story all those years ago but it appears she has breathed new life into her subject's dream and, in a sense, become part of the story herself. Stewart Gore-Browne would surely have approved.
