This is where sunbathing and waterskiing were invented, where beach, sea and sun came together to create the archetypal Mediterranean vacation.To grow up as an English girl – at home in two cultures – in the centre of this beautiful and extraordinary place, at such a dramatic time, made for a fascinating and unusual childhood.Shattered suddenly by evacuation in 1940 – on the last boat to England – to work as a nurse in the London Hospital in Whitechapel during the war. Then a return to France, and the British Embassy in Paris, with all the privations, challenges and opportunities of the post-war years.This autobiography takes us from 1928 to 1950, from the age of six to the age of 28.

At times a gentle description of a vanished way of life- at others a chronicle of a rich family life- with some moments of intense drama, and others of lyrical description.* Amazon Kindle/History/France, October 2013
