A Chapter of Life, Mary Church Anderson

A Chapter of Life, <br/> Mary Church Anderson


5000 miles from Scotland to Zambia

In 1964 Mary Church Anderson decided she wanted to see the world. As a qualified midwife she was given the chance to work in what was then Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia.)

She decided to take the opportunity to leave all that she had known; family, friends and home to begin a new chapter of her life. During her time in Africa she went on safari, had encounters with the local wildlife, visited the pyramids, helped a lot of families and made lifelong friends.

This is the inspiring story of a woman who took a bold step to set off on a great African adventure, the challenges she faced, the joy she shared and the people she met along the way.
