Looking for Mrs Livingstone

Julie Davidson

Saint Andrew Press

In Looking for Mrs. Livingstone Julie Davidson performs a skilful balancing act between the scanty information we have on Mary Livingstone?s life and career, in Africa and beyond, and her own travels in Africa, running back over the ground that the Livingstones covered in often unimaginably difficult conditions, and evoking the many sides to Mary Livingstone?s story, someone caught in circumstances over which she had often no control.  It?s a moving and continuously gripping fusion of fact and travelogue.
