Laura, Jeff, and four-year-old Annabel have come to live in a remote place in Sub-Saharan Africa, where Jeff is a doctor in the local hospital. They are surrounded by poverty and hardship, and communications are almost non-existant. How will they cope?
An earlier version of Mrs Whitelady, Welcome to Africa, Mrs Bennett, won the Daily Telegraph/Alexander McCall Smith online serialised novel competition in 2009.
'This tale of cultures clashing and a marriage threatened is told with an awareness of the humour and horror inherent in the everyday. The author has created a sympathetic and rounded character in Mrs Bennett, and has an eye for incidental detail. This, combined with an ear for dialogue, makes this story stand out as the winner.'
