I Dreamed of Africa

9780001056480: I Dreamed of Africa

In I Dreamed of Africa, the power of a woman’s spirit and her growing love for her adopted African homeland enable her to overcome overwhelming personal tragedy and find purpose in life.

As a child, Kuki Gallmann discovered the singular magic of Africa. As an adult, she emigrates to Africa with her new husband, Paolo, and her son, Emanuele. Although it is the place she has waited for all her life, she never dreamed of the pain, passion, joy and hardship that was hidden in its vast beauty.

Powerful, poetic, unbearably moving: I wept ( Clare Francis)

'This is a book that belongs on a shelf with the memoirs of Olive Schreiner, Elspeth Huxley, Beryl Markham - and with Out of Africa Judith Thurman

Ms Gallmann captures perfectly the magic of Kenya, creating an almost overwhelming picture of beauty and drama, pain and joy, death and resurrection . . . Vividly reminiscent of Isak Dinesen ( New York Times)
