Governor's Lady

Set in an off-the-map British Colony in Central Africa in the early 1930&146;s, The Governor&146;s Lady portays a host of interesting characters: young Harold Stebbs, bachelor, newly appointed to the Governor&146;s secretariat in Amimbo, the Governor, Sir Gardnor Hackforth, already something of a Pro-consular legend in the Service, and tipped by The Times for the next Viceroyship, Mr. Frith, the passed-over Acting Chief Secretary, a rather too familiar figure at the bar in the Milner Club, Tony Henley, the A.D.C., who has ultimately to be disowned, Old Moses, the trusted Mimbo butler and key figure in the Residency, the socially irresistible Mr. Ngono, Mr. Talefwa, left-wing editor of the African Independence newspaper, War Drum, and Mr. Das, itinerant legal Counsel called in by the Defence. Then there is the Governor&146;s Lady herself, twenty years younger than Sir Gardnor, somewhat withdrawn from Government life because of an incident that occurred before Harold Stebbs arrived, and already the subject of gossip in European, African and Asian circles alike. There is also Lady Anne&146;s lady-in-waiting, Sybil Prosser, who has her own reasons for discretion.
