Missing Downton Abbey? You'll Love These Books About Keen-ya...

Follow me on:

West with the Night, favorite book set in AfricaWith the season finale of Downton Abbey (shocking US audiences) this past Sunday,  you might want to drown your sorrows by checking into the equally dramatic and somewhat glamorous lives of the first white settlers in Kenya (or "Keenya" as they liked to call it). My favorite is Beryl Markham's excellent West with the Night, and if you loved watching "Out of Africa" or "White Mischief",  you may enjoy reading the list of books below. They are ranked in order of my personal preference.

I have now had more than enough of the "upstairs", it's time to check back into the "downstairs" and get updated on modern Kenya. Check out my full list of: Recommended books about Kenya...
