Those who have come to love Miss Read's delightfully humorous novels of country life will be enraptured by these two autobiographical volumes, affectionate and unashamedly nostalgic accounts of her childhood.
In A Fortunate Grandchild, Miss Read draws on her gentle and colourful memories of Grandma Read in Lewisham and Grandma Shafe in Walton-on-the-Naze, and their rambling, flock-wallpapered houses full of nooks and forbidden adult mysteries, which provided young Dora with a bedrock of security in the uncertain days of the Great War.
Time Remembered describes the three years - 1921 to 1924 - that Miss Read spent at the village school in Chelsfield, Kent - one of the happiest periods of her life.

I have been a huge fan of Miss Read for many many years, and it was so lovely to hear her voice as she tells the story of her childhood . It was like listening to an old friend reminiscing of times gone by.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend.
