Sometimes a reader craves a good, old fashioned yarn This much anticipated novel from the author of The Paris Wife is exactly that an engrossing story of love and adventure in colonial Africa, complete with gorgeous landscape, dissolute British ex pats, and lots of derring do with horses, motorcars and airplanes That it is also the best kind of contemporary historical novel the kind that teaches you something about the real people and events of the time is a bonus At the center of the novel is Beryl Markham born you gotta love it Clutterbuck , the headstrong daughter of a British colonial who grew up comfortable among the people and animals of her adopted Kenya than in the homes of its landed gentry When Beryls mother leaves the family and her father gives up the farm, she marries at 16 a gentleman farmer, a drunk too louche to be much of a husband Like privileged but love hungry teenage girls past and future, Beryl seeks companionship from her horses, becoming the first and greatest female horse trainer in the region Along the way, she hobnobs with Kenyan high society, including, but not limited to, Karen Blixen who authored her own epic story, Out of Africa, under the pen name Isaak Dinesen and her lover Denys Finch Hatten who will always be Robert Redford to those of us who watched him play the role in the movie version of Dinesens book Much bed hopping
