Daughter of the Desert – Georgina Howell

I loved this book about an incredible and not terribly well-known woman’s life and the impact and influence that she had in the Middle East in the early twentieth century.

Why she isn’t extremely famous in the UK is something I don’t quite understand.  We’ve all heard of Florence Nightingale, Grace Darling, Emmeline Pankhurst etc, but not the amazing Gertrude Bell.
