Synopsis

This book is a collection of Edwardian childhood memories, including unique paintings, drawings and poems. All created by author Cerita Stanley-Little over her lifetime: Inherited, collected and edited by her daughter Clarissa Lablache Cheer: In a series of recollections, her story vividly portrays in detail, the fears and actions of a small child, and how she rebelled against the oppressive middle class family upbringing in England, before World War I began and tore apart their orderly lives. The author looks back into reflections of memory, of the human condition in her family upbringing, and plunges us deep into the heart of an Edwardian child, and life where children were still brought up under strict Victorian discipline. Later in life when nostalgia engulfed her, she liked to remember the softer familiar Edwardian world she knew, where time stood still, and her imagination ran wild creating fantasy stories and pictures.
