Book Description

15 Nov 1984
Born in a small Hill Station in India called Muree, the daughter of an Indian officer, Joyce Dennys, here, gives a lively account of her childhood. Her mother nearly died after birth, so she returned home to England with her children, the youngest being her new baby, called Joyce. The family settled in Eastbourne, but after some years Joyce's mother returned to India to join her husband, and her small daughter went to live with her grandparents in their big, dark redbrick house. Her memories of life are sharp, funny and alive, with anecdotes that are full of humor.

5.0 out of 5 stars ENGAGING MEMOIR 1 Mar 2011
By Sarah E. Clark - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A gentle, engaging memoir by Dennys who was born in 1893 in India but sent home with her siblings to live with family in England for schooling. She shows us a world now long gone from both a child's and adult's perspective, full of humor and insight, and illustrated by her spritely line drawings.
