Read full description of the books:
This rating is purely based on the impression that this book left on me as a young teen. Between the ages of 12 and 15, I "worked" in my school library. There were numerous benefits; staying inside when it was raining, getting to take out as many books as I liked, and being recommended books by the librarian. The latter part is how I came across this book.
I must have taken this book out of the library half a dozen times. Then, when it was deemed too tatty to remain on the shelves, I got to take it home for good.
While I haven't read this for a long time, it stays with me a lot more than other books I read in those years. I remember being utterly enchanted and thoroughly distressed by the plot in turns, and I would sit reading with a torch under my duvet late into the night, tears absolutely streaming down my face. There were about four different parts of the book that would never fail to make me cry, no matter how much I was prepared for them.
Maybe this wouldn't be a five-star read if I found my ancient copy of this and re-read it. But I'll stick by my rating due to the intense love I used to hold for it.

In 1945, Laird and her family returned to Britain and she grew up in South London, where she was educated at Croydon High School.
When she was eighteen, Laird started teaching at a school in Malaysia. She decided to continue her adventurous life, even though she was bitten by a poisonous snake and went down with typhoid.
After attending the university in Bristol, Laird began teaching English in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. She and a friend would hire mules and go into remote areas in the holidays.
After a while at Edinburgh University, Laird worked in India for a summer. During travel, she met her future husband, David McDowall, who she said was very kind to her when she was airsick on a plane. The couple were married in 1975 and have two sons, Angus and William.
