Su questo libro:

Riassunto: Juanita Carberry was brought up by her father's black servants and white governess. Her mother died when she was three but Juanita did not discover this until, when she was six, a cousin taunted her with the truth. At 15 Juanita became involved in the Lord Erroll affair, but didn't help the police.

Dall'audiolibro: Early twentieth-century British settlers in Kenya were a mixed lot. Many were pioneers out to make a life, but an equal number were scandalously debauched and in search of the free life they could neither afford nor live back in England. Born thus into the "Happy Valley Set" in 1925, Juanita Carberry from the outset felt all the confusion, anxiety, and loneliness of a child with indifferent, even hostile, parents. Her only relief as a child came from the land of Kenya, its native people and fascinating wildlife. Briony Sykes narrates the story of this difficult childhood partly with the petulant rhythms of the gifted though angry child, but more often with a voice alive with delight at the newness of Kenya unfolding all around her. Both tale and reading captivate us with the richness and fascination of this world that once was but, sadly, can be no more.
