This delightful book contains the detailed memoirs of the author's mother. She began the endeavor as a memoir to her beloved husband and their common life at Alton. Due to ill health, she had to lay aside her work, but, after the death of her sister-in-law, took it up once again.

A story of the interweaving lives of the people around her, this memoir, written by her son and accomplished writer Augustus Hare, is a marvelous story sure to appeal to the discerning reader and those interested in the life and work of Augustus Hare.
