About This Item

UK,8vo HB+dw/dj,1st edn.FINE/NFINE.No owner inscrptn and no price-clip.Very slight minimal creasing top edge dw/dj,shelf-wear? Derek Tangye's wife died 22 Feb,1986.Her death,a shattering loss not only to Derek,himself,but to a multitude of readers who knew and loved her as the heroine of the Minack Chronicles - his enchanting books about their life in a little cottage on a cliff top not far from LAND'S END - and as the creator of the line drawings that adorned them.For all who mourned his loss with him,he has written this moving love story in which he recalls the joys of their marriage. Derek recounts scenes from their blissful,happy marriage - their famous meeting at the SAVOY,their escape from London's hurly-burly to their Cornish flower farm,their tranquil country life surrounded by their animal companions. Jeannie shines through as a sensitive best friend who cascaded fun.As he considers her qualities - her effervescent warmth, enthusiasm,naturalness,her wide interests,her toughness his tone is reflective;and tinged with one of pride with sadness as he describes her unfailing bravery through her final illness.But the dominant theme is gratitude for their life together; Jeannies favourite phrase,'How lucky we are',echoes through the book.Poignant but serene,dignified and never sentimental,Jeannie is as engaging as Derek Tangye's devotees will expect. Jean Nicol Tangye was the author of 'Meet me at the Savoy' and the trilogy 'HOTEL REGINA','HOME IS THE HOTEL' and 'BERTONI's HOTEL.'
