After being sent to England for a year, to live with well meaning but unworldly Aunts, the sisters Jon and Rummer were now returning to their family and home in Narayangunj, India. It's 1914 and they have come home to escape from the dangers of war. Aged 7 and 6 they spend the next five years in India, where their mother is constantly vigilant of the water they drink, the mosquitoes that invade at night and all the unseen dangers of everyday life. The girls love their Indian lifestyle, and the freedom of their childhood speaks of a time that has gone forever. Their father employed as a steamboat agent was allocated a company house and here the family lived with a small number of house servants. To escape the heat of summer the household would move to the hills of Darjeeling or Musoorie for months, and reading about their travels to these hilltop villages was just lovely. It would be magic to spend the summer in a houseboat on the lake in old Kashmir. As sisters, Jon and Rummer were very close, they shared everything, had no secrets! Those five years obviously had a big influence on them both and was inspirational in their later careers as writers. The book ended too abruptly for my liking but then this idyllic time was also about to end as the sisters were changing, as we all do, with age. ( )

Picked this one up because of my great love for Rumer Godden's "Miss Happiness and Miss Flower," which I borrowed from the library repeatedly.
Expect to discover where the tale of Nona's loneliness in England actually originated. Plan to shelve with my collection of Godden's doll books.

Yay! An important piece of historical information, slotted into the home library, pleases the bibliophilic collectionista in me.

This book was in my childhood library and it has remained dear to me. There are some hard truths about childhood in it, a glimpse of life in the Raj times in India and besides it is a good story.
I am fond of the Goddens as authors, although I realize they are dated and mannered, they are as comforting as an old robe.
But why I wonder does this cover show it as authored by Jon Godden instead of Jon and Rumer Godden? ( )

In the background of our house in Narayangunj there were always three sounds: the regular puff of escaping steam from the jute works across the road, puff - wait - puff like the pulse of our days and nights; then, from first daylight until dusk, the cawing of crows in the garden and, all day and most of the night, the tympany of the bazaar: a chatter like sparrows, street cries, a woman wailing, a baby's cry.
Then, everything was clear; each thing was only itself: joy was joy, hope was hope, fear and sorrow were fear and sorrow; pain was simply pain; they had not yet trespassed into one another, not merged. - Prologue
