Period Piece – A Cambridge Childhood by Gwen Raverat

To Junie

This is one of the most charming, funny, entertaining books I ever read. Lots of it is about places you’ve visited and lived in.

Gwen’s mother was American, her father Darwin’s son George, and her sister Randal Keynes’s grandmother. The illustrations are all by Gwen, who is more famous as an artist. I hope you enjoy the book – starting with pp.156-59, about the Sandwalk.

Love Always

Your dad
