Description

Philomena is requisitioned from a Dorset field in the summer of 1914, and serves with the yeomanry in Egypt and Palestine until the end of the First World War. But she doesn't come back to England: thousands of British Army horses are sold off locally. Faint news of her reaches Griselda Romney, her old owner. The impulsive Griselda, taking with her little Amabel and, of course, Nanny, sails for Egypt - to find Philomena and bring her home.show more

Review quote

"A remarkable work of literature... If literary prizes were awarded (as they still, occasionally, are), on pure excellence of writing, Our Horses in Egypt would be sure to make Rosalind Belben a late-blooming household name" -- Jane Shilling * Sunday Telegraph * "Magnificent... funny and sad, by turns elegant and terse, romantic and brisk - evocative and entirely beguiling, a wonderful novel" -- Matthew Dennison * Daily Telegraph * "Profound and original" * Independent * "A most unusual, fascinating novel...gripping transcontinental adventure" * Herald * "Brilliantly brutal" * Big Issue *show more
