Raised by eccentric grandparents at Annesgrove, an Irish stately home, Diana Duff grew up surrounded by family ghosts, banshees, and buried treasure. At 18, she entered the glamorous world of 50s Kenya, becoming a stand-in for Grace Kelly before embarking on a career as a nurse. After marrying a young officer in the Colonial Service, Diana spent her nights shivering and alone, gun in hand in the face of the Mau Mau rebellion. Moving to Tanganyika, she went on to found the first inter-racial nursery school in East Africa before moving to South Africa in the 1960s at the height of apartheid.
