Witty, quirky and engaging are the words to describe these childhood memories, from the first chapter ‘Nearly Born Under a Hedge’ to the innocent humour of ‘The Russian Princess’, where a fun-loving granny dances around in a Cossack hat with her grandaughter. The reader will be captivated from the moment they first turn the pages and share the wide experiences of a small child.
The mortal sin of not attending church is captured poignantly in ‘The Lost Sheep’ and the desire to fit in with the lovely neighbours next door in ‘The Honorary Catholic’. Being pursued by the local vicar for her lack of religious experience is something she will never forget.
The author invites you to share these important moments of nostalgia with her as you settle down and read her gentle memoir.
