    I m putting this one aside for now bookmarked at page 90 The book started off really good and I thought I was going to love it, colonizing Kenya in 1917, pretty exciting, right But once we arrive and get semi settled, the story becomes sidetracked into relationship issuesthe frigid wife the spinster longing for a married manI m not in the mood for this To be honest, I just don t care enough about the characters to be interested I had this same issue with The Passing Bells by Philip Rock.

    3.5 Overall I enjoyed this I loved the setting and how vivid it felt The conflicts that arose were heartfelt and some heartbreaking However it felt overly romanticized in the early to mid book and I felt that was either a distraction from everything else happening or energy should have been spent on the inter racial relationship And then, after I get invested and they have a kid and then wham the book takes a serious tone to it and the romance is gone Now I liked how well written this was It really brought Kenya a historical Kenya to life TO see the differences of the colonists versus the natives of the land and how the interactions might have happened It is a beautifully written saga that can both delight and have you questioning who we are as people.

    I haven t read this in a long time but it was always one of my favorites Intrepid woman doctor in the bush longing for married man Check Murder, scandal, vengeful medicine woman who curses an entire family Check Angry husbands, wistful wives, and scheming bitches Check So Much Trash.No pirates, however Problem.

    For anyone who has ever either moved to another country or went for an extend stay and tried to immerse themselves in the culture you will find this an interesting read The Tiverton Family British and Wachera African are linked because of a curse The Tiverton Family came to Kenya in 1917 to make a new life for themselve Adventurers thrill and fortune seekers came to the land at that time They came they took over they failed to learn about the intricate culture in which they moved into Hence a clash of 2 worlds Somethings never seem to change, no Barbara Woods offers a beautifully written novel about the people the land the traditions the hardships and joys of two very different familes expereience I loved the strong female characters the look at Kenya s history and it s fight for independence and the ultimate message offered.As usual Barbara Woods does not dissapoint.

    I just re read this over the winter My first reading of this book was back in 1996 when I was sick with mono and did little else but sleep and read It will always be one of the best books I have ever read in my life Rich with history, love affairs, cultural differences and boundaries, and most especially the loyalty and love of breathtaking Africa As with any good novel, there are many twists and turns that the reader does not see coming Overall, an amazing book.

    I totally love Barbara Wood and her stories If you read it you just HAVE to mention she has really been in the area she is writing about because of her visual style of writing and the details she can give about the surroundings I ve become so captivated, so fascinated I would never have layed this book aside if I would have the time for it and even now, when I ve finished it, I can t put it away because I feel almost related to it.It s real life, the life we never want to be but which is always catching up with us The life we never want to end and on the other hand have to finish because we can t stand it any This one is definitely one of my favourite s which one s not thanks to Barbara Wood

    I will try to not gush too much but I love books that are set in international settings during an intense historical period This book not only has an incredibly dramatic story but it brings Kenya and this particularly difficult period of their history to life The author paints vivid visual paintings and writes to appeal to all of the senses I found it a very engaging, hard to put down book.

    History of Kenya from 1919 1986 present Apartheid seen from every side with an emphasis on the emotional struggles, abuse, and how power overwhelms a culture and then finally recovery for a people never before imagined as such a spectacular disappointment.Beautifully written with a thorough understanding of the paradise the land could offer Colonization wasn t the plan in the beginning it instead was a supposed protectorate Something to conclude, people never learn to respect the current populace in this space India had to rise up against their oppressors, our country with our westward expansion across the American Indian However, Africa used a variety of situations and eventually resorted to violence Again, look at Korea and Japan sasion This backdrop of history follows precisely from beginning to end, Kenya s struggle The novel portion was absolutely fascinating You found yourself admiring both sides, black and white Admirable and amoral people combined In a way it felt like a battle between two proud families The warrior Lion leading his tribe with the Medicine Woman so powerful against the Earl and Sir James creating their plantations to honor England as well as their pockets.Each person comes with an impact and their own story sometimes romantic, sometimes self assertion which leads to slavery, and then sometimes to heroic action beyond belief As we all like to believe, love is ingredient that binds us Love can mean sacrifice and selfless action.Memorable Interesting to read today with our chaos and civil liberties at stake Makes you wonder how one person can change our world for the better.

    So I ll start with the good Barbara Wood, an American who spent 6 weeks in Kenya doing research for a book about British colonialists in Kenya, did a pretty good job with description, especially since she did not write this book in the time of the internet As a person who grew up in Kenya, I was impressed with her details though she got some things wrong, it was still amazing how much she got right.Now the bad this book was a series of soap opera episodes Seriously, the only trick Wood skipped was the old he died but came back as an identical twin chestnut Ridiculous melodrama seriously silly The book would have been half as long if Wood wasn t so bad at repeating herself, describing certain characters exactly the same every time they made an appearance and opining about what makes something home To cap it all off, she told instead of showed, so the book was often artificial and preachy Agonizing I only stayed with the book because it was about my heart country As a story, I would give it one and a half stars, tops.

    Having been to Kenya recently, this was intriguing, but I still found myself inserting scenes from Out of Africa into this book, so I guess I would rather just watch the movie on this one One comment in general, it was sad to see that the colonial empires just cut and run Kenyan natives wanted, God forbid, to rule themselves and instead of sticking around to ensure a successful transition and future of Kenya, Great Britain just left, pissed off that the native people didn t want to be subjugated.
