Well-researched and well-written with a nice bibliography of colonial era works on Kenya. This might not appeal to readers who are only interested in the Kenyan aspects of Huxley's work, but I found it an interesting insight into a woman who was a professional journalist and novelist during a time period when married mothers were generally not expected to have careers that involved extensive travel away from home.
