A great story by M.M. Kaye. Written during the early years of the 20th century. She actually lived in Kenya for a bit, so her story is true to the land and the times.
LARGE PRINT -- When Victoria Caryll is offered a position at "Flamingo, " her aunt's family estate in Kenya, she accepts--knowing full well that she will see Eden DeBrett once again. But she doesn't realize that coming to her aunt's home will introduce her to a household thrown into grief by a recent murder.
The back of the book says that this is a classic and I suppose if you like a more erudite, cerebral read, it's for you.
I love this author and think all her books are great.
An old book, but the mystery still holds. I gave it to my husband who wondered why I'd given him a "romance" but eventually he got through the introduction and enjoyed the story as well. I guess it is a valid look at life for white folks in the Rift Valley, but it's really hard to imagine such a lifestyle today.
