Set in the Welsh borders, this enchanting autobiographical novel vividly evokes the essence of childhood and a vanished way of life through the eyes of nine-year-old Lucy. She describes the great events - haymaking, harvest, a seaside holiday - set against the tapestry of the everyday, the routines of summer and winter with the constant background of the garden outside. And there is the world of the imagination too, the invested heroes and heroines of childhood whose deeds are as important as those of any real person.
Eiluned Lewis recaptures this world in a deceptively simple style, bringing to life the whims, terrors and intense feelings of childhood in a way that very few writers have succeeded in doing.
The novel was first published in 1934 to great acclaim and is the eleventh title in the Honno Classics series.
This edition includes a new explanatory introduction by Dr Katie Gramich.
"Its pristine freshness and simplicity of language gives it... a perennial appeal."
