A hidden hoard of letters. A forgotten past. The sister you hardly knew. In 1956, Elizabeth Cameron went to Uganda to work as a nursing sister and midwife. Her weekly letters home, carefully stored by her mother, and found over sixty years later by Alison, her younger sister, revealed life under British rule and the breakdown of law and order in the approach to Independence. She had not realised how the political upheaval provoked such love, sadness and tragedy not only for Elizabeth and Mark but for the people of Uganda whatever their colour, race or creed.
