Leopard at the Door

Leopard at the Door is an incredibly well-paced novel set in Kenya during the 1950’s. Rachel has returned to her family’s farm in rural Kenya after being sent to England for six years following the death of her mother. She returns to a land both familiar and in the midst of great political change. McVeigh’s writing is superb and she fills her novel with the sweeping landscape of Kenya, the heartache of Rachel coming of age, and the emotional cost of change.
