Noel Streatfeild gives a lively acount of her childhood at the beginning of this century. Her father was a Church of England vicar and later bishop, and Noel and her brother and sisters grew up in various vicarages in the South of England. Noel was the middle one of the three girls and she was the least pretty, the most rebellious, the strongest willed and by far the most imaginative of the children.
This delightful book is a saga of tales about Noel Streatfeild’s childhood, spent in an England so soon to be shattered by the outbreak of war in 1914.
