An unusual and intriguing memoir that embraces the essence and true spirit of people everywhere. Andi draws you into the heart of Africa, and with the sun warm on your shoulders, you meet its people, explore their land, and hear their stories. 

Having hitch-hiked through Europe in the Swinging 60s, Andi returns to Kenya with her husband and baby, to discover fascinating stories from her family’s early years in colonial Kenya. These captivating tales intertwine with Andi’s mother’s richly detailed and revealing letters and journals, which tell of her adventures in Egypt during the war, how she met her husband, and of her experiences raising her family on faraway farms on the equator.

Insights, sadness, and humour are shared as Andi’s path takes her further afield to Australia and New Zealand.
Twists of fate lead to a spontaneous invitation to join Kenyan athletes who openly share their own stories.

Sometimes tragic, or tense, often humorous and joyful, but always lively and interesting, Twenty Miles to say Goodbye should intrigue, sadden, and enchant.
