A Spear of Summer Grass by Deanna Raybourn

A Spear of Summer Grass

*fear African wildlife less than society-types?*

In 1923 Delilah Drummond leaves her fabulous, scandalous flapper life in Paris to avoid bringing serious legal trouble to her family’s front door. Headed to her step-father’s homestead in Kenya, Delilah and her cousin-slash-chaperone Dora find the people, the place, and the land are all in dire need of a helping hand. Will that hand belong to Delilah or will she be headed back to the party life as soon as can be managed? Strong characters hold their own against a stunning setting and the intriguing descriptions tribal customs -as well as the exiled British community- are fascinating.
