AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Iris is the author's grandmother, and in her garden she is the centre of a feminine world. Her sister Reece, who grew up but remained a child, her daughter Ronda and her granddaughter Barbara people that world. At home or at school, on holidays by the sea or even growing up and leaving for art school in London, Barbara's thoughts keep returning to Iris.
