Some people achieve far more than their time on earth should allow, making a real difference to many, yet unrecognised by most.Olga Baillie-Grohman is one such person. The summary of her life reads as an extraordinary catalogue of events ? born in Austria within hours of Adolf Hitler and Charlie Chaplin, she married a Kenyan soldier-settler and was recruited to British Intelligence work. Her second marriage to a senior Government official enabled her to fulfil many missions in life - elected as the first female member of the Nairobi City Council followed by the Kenyan Legislative Council, Olga used her standing to advance better urban housing for African's, education for the continents women and as a representative to the smaller coffee farmers. Olga?s story is one that should not be forgotten as it is a guiding light for putting the world to rights and an inspiration to others.

In the late 1950s, Opus Dei sought to begin apostolic work in Africa. A group of young women from various countries moved to Kenya with the aim of starting a school, one open to women of all races and beliefs, the first of its kind. Olga Marlin, who was one of those young women, tells the story of how the womens' faith in their mission was sustained despite obstacles and ultimately bore fruit.

Oscar Watkins was a Bisley shot and a hockey ""Blue"" for Oxford University; a cavalry trooper in the Boer War; a magistrate on the Kenya Slave Courts which freed the slaves early in this century; Commandant of the 400,000-strong Carrier Corps in the East Africa Campaign in World War I; acting Kenya Chief Native Commissioner and Provincial Commissioner; and the first editor of a Swahilli newspaper which, under his editorship, gained the largest circulation of any paper in Africa. He strove unceasingly to protect the interests of the African peoples. Resisting the pressures from European settlers for more labour to be made available to work on their farms, and for more land to be made available for European settlement, he found himself on a collision course with the settlers and their fiery leader Lord Delamere, and a Governor who was inclined to take their part. This tribute to Oscar Watkins is written by his daughter.

Often called the 'most royal Princess in Europe', Olga’s life is imbued with drama from the outset: Taken ‘hostage’ by her Romanov grandmother, she is further traumatised by the assassination of her grandfather, the King of Greece, followed by a humiliating Swiss exile and being cast aside by a future Danish king. While Olga’s marriage to the Prince Regent of Yugoslavia finds her raised to the rank of Consort, it eventually leads to her being branded a ‘dangerous traitor’ and sent as a ‘political prisoner’ to Kenya. Yet, as readers will discover, this is ultimately a story of duty, determination and redemption.
