Life goes on in small village

Anna and Her Daughters

By: D. E. Stevenson

Rating: 5 of 5

I’ve come across a number of D.E. Stevenson books that I haven’t read before. This is one of them. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

There a few references to natives in Africa that, by today’s outlook, seem out of step. However, when you look at the date that the book was written, it comes clear. It is still offensive but it only a small part of the book.
