Inhaltsangabe: This is a rite of passage memoir, as well as an account of childhood in a vanished world. Phyllida Barstow gives a disarmingly frank account of her developing personality as she grows up with the kind of eccentric, rural, educated upbringing that we seem too nervously conformist to give our children nowadays. The personalities are vibrant, from parents and siblings to sheepdogs and a succession of beloved ponies. The arduous life on a hill farm is interleaved with civilising spells in seductive France, and the extraordinary rituals of the London season, especially for a girl whose heart lay more in dog baskets than handbags. It is a book carried along by the author's own energy and appetite for life, written with great clarity and elegance.
'A refreshingly candid account' --Joanna Trollope
Her autobiography is psychobabble-free and upbeat. Phyllida and siblings enjoyed a freedom that contrasts so sharply with the lives of today s over-protected children. --BBC Countryfile
A wonderful childhood memoir? Phyllida is a sensitive observer, who writes with great clarity and elegance. --Country and Border Life
