'Hughenden', the seaside mansion of the author's grandparents, provided the 'solid bluestone foundations' of her somewhat peripatetic youth, offering her a haven of emotional security and material abundance. The puzzled observations and alert curiosity of a highly intelligent child are vividly recreated in these recollections, which paint an evocative picture of middle-class life in Melbourne in the early years of the twentieth century.
