From the publisher

Blue Remembered Hills is a memoir of childhood, youth and her first love affairs by the acclaimed British historical novelist Rosemary Sutcliff, author of, among many others, The Eagle of the NinthDawn WindThe Mark of the Horse Lord and The Lantern-Bearers. It’s a classic of perfect writing about her close and not always easy relationship with her bipolar mother, life in the naval dockyards where her father was based, and the beloved family dogs, interspersed with her stoic endurance of physical and emotional pain. We can trace the origins of many of her much-loved novels in this story of her early life.

This new edition of Rosemary Sutcliff’s classic memoir includes an introduction by disability campaigner and sociologist Tom Shakespeare.
