Xandra Bingley spent her early years on a Cotswold hill farm against the backdrop of the Second World War and its aftermath. Her mother, the elegant and remarkably hardy May, once a sparkling debutante, turns her hand to farming while Xandra's father, Bertie, is away at war. Isolated by landscape, farmyards and a thousand acres, Xandra is an only child among animals, farm workers, landgirls and prisoners of war. Her story captures the essence of her simple country childhood and often harsh reality of the adult world surrounding her.
