A Fascinating Book

I just finished reading The Bolter by Frances Osborne. This book was about Idina Sackville. To quote the blurb on the front cover – “Idina Sackville – the woman who scandalized 1920s society and became White Mischief’s infamous seductress. Of course it was about Kenya and I love reading anything about Kenya – but particularly about Kenya in the early days of white/colonial settlement. It was only when I got to the end of the book that I realized that the author was writing about her own relation and that her research was extremely thorough. Wow!
