It tells, in charming conversational style, of the rigours of domestic life in early Salisbury (now Harare), the raising of a young family, the social life of the day and the activities of her husband Toby.

Sheila Macdonalds delightful humour ripples through the book and is at its best, perhaps, when she recounts how she copes with the culinary exploits of inexperienced domestic servants. Sally in Rhodesia ran to many editions in the United Kingdom and Australia, and became something of an institution in Rhodesia, a classic on the family life of the settler. Sally (nee Sheila MacKenzie) was born in New Zealand, where her father ran a sheep station and was, for a time, a Member of the New Zealand Parliament.

After the death of her first husband in 1924 she left Rhodesia for England, where she supported her family by writing books. In 1933 she remarried and lived with her husband in Tanganyika and Kenya before eventually retiring to Cape Town in South Africa. Highly recommended as light reading.
