Turning your book into a reality

A Jolly Life – by Mereo Books

by John OdlingSmee

Charles Theophilus Hahn, born into the English upper middle classes in 1870, was a scholar and a cleric who served as an army chaplain in World War One. He and his wife travelled widely in Europe and Africa and developed a fascination for the ‘Dark Continent’ which led to him spending twenty years there as a priest and missionary and editing the newspaper of the Anglican church in South Africa. His love for Africa inspired the writing of poetry and the painting of many watercolours which survive to this day. Now his story has been researched and written by John Odling-Smee, his great-nephew.
