KIRKUS REVIEW

Reminiscences of an Oxfordshire hamlet, purely agricultural, where wages were low, families large, and the old ways held sway. Contact with the world came through daughters ""in service"" -- or local politics. The tone of the memories is a happy one, in spite of poverty. Portrait of a time past, leisurely, nostalgic, with entertaining sidelights on English country ways. An English Country Kitchen!
