The Flame Trees of Thika

by marifran on Jan 24, 2010

I've enjoyed reading this book very much. It's one of those I'm going to re-read many times. What I've liked most about the author's style is the vitality of her characters. Every one of them is a true human being, unique in its personality and actitude towards life. A delightful novel. More

Flame Trees of Thika

by BevM on Aug 15, 2008

This is the first book I've read by Elspeth Huxley--it will not be the last! This is a delightful and charming story of an era that was previously unknown to me. The author is a skilled writer with a droll sense of humor and fascinates with her attention to detail. More
