Uzuri travelled throughout the regions close to Kenya extensively, enjoying the warmth, the sun and its strange peoples and customs, and its wonderful animals. Her heart had healed enough for her to smile again, perhaps not yet easily, but naturally, at least. 1937 saw her join her family in Britain, but she had insisted on buying and living on her own property – something decent, but modest, in the countryside with a few horses. Starfire had joined his dam, Epona, in the Undying Lands of her people. Uzuri knew she would see him again, one day.
London, though, was very different to Paris, as Uzuri was to find, regardless of the years gone by….
