If there was a paradise untouched by the war in the winter of 1940, it was Kenya's Happy Valley. There the tall, blond and impeccably groomed Josslyn Hay, 22nd Earl of Errol, enjoyed a decadent life of pleasure with his fellow aristocrats. Their's was a society in which adultery was routine and Errol set the pace with a series of flamboyant affairs with the colony's leading ladies – including the delightfully eccentric Alice. It was in this highly charged atmosphere that 57-year old Sir Delves Broughton, brought his ravishing young bride, Diana. It could never be the same again.
