"This book proves as inspiring as it is charming and
"Brisk and admirable....Capturing the experience of a generation too often made over-grim or over-glorious, it is the autobiography of a woman, not merely a writer."--Los Angeles Times
"Especially welcome."--Publishers Weekly
"Contains some wonderful treats....Christie writes with such wit and insight that all 542 pages fly."--Cleveland Plain Dealer
"A fun read, full of detail about upper-crust life in the Victorian era and about Christie's own surprise at finding herself a mystery novelist."--Charlotte News & Observer
"The history of a unique upbringing in a time long gone. It's a portrait of a childhood and young womanhood that vanished with World War I."--Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
"Christie writes with a wonderful dry wit. It is fascinating to see how people she met became characters in her novels."--Daily American
