Through conversations with Rumer Godden herself and from her exclusive access to private letters, Anne Chisholm has written the definitive biography (for adults and young adults) of this cherished author who died in 1998. From her idyllic childhood ...
in Bengal, to founding a dance school in Calcutta, to being conspired against by a poison-bearing servant, to her ultimate retreat to England, Chisholm delineates the woman whose life was as dramatic and eventful as the plot of any of her novels. Also included are black-and-white photo inserts, notes on sources, a complete list of Rumer Godden's books, and an index. Anne Chisholm lives in England.
