Finding a Flame Lily

ISBN Paperback 978-1-907991-13-4     ISBN eBook 978-1-907991-14-1

A young, working class girl leaves the dreary monochrome world of postwar Britain for the vibrant colours and contrasting way of life in a tiny, remote town in the African bush. An authentic memoir and an entertaining, satisfying read.




The Author


After studying Geography at university, Judy has spent many years in various parts of Africa with her husband. She worked as a town planner, private secretary, medical and arts administrator, tutor and lecturer and has now “retired” to concentrate on writing, painting, travel and a social life. She has two sons and three grandchildren, her finest productions. She lives in the North Cotswolds, Gloucestershire with her dog, a stone’s throw from her family.



An unromanticised, insightful and engaging memoir of post-war Britain and Colonial Africa.

Prue Leith


A beautifully-observed piece of historical, political and socio-economic commentary.
