Reader's note

Add some dusky pink to your bookshelf with this wonderful vintage book! Mary Clive's account of a small girl's Christmas holiday in a large country house during the reign of King Edward VII is a delightful recapture of things past, effortlessly funny and full of humour. At Tamerlane Hall the child Evelyn found herself in the company of the gentle Glens, the plaintive Howliboos, and, above all, the ebullient Savages, so remarkably uninhibited for their times. Their exploits were memorable indeed, and the retrospective portraits of conspicuous grown-ups including Aunt Muriel's husbands, supernumerary Uncles and other Aunts, upper servants, Nana and other attendant sprites are faithful to the prim little eight-year-old visitor! If you're not familiar with this lovely old book, treat yourself today.
