Really enjoyed it. I didn't realise she came from such a well to do background. Her early childhood looked very Blytonesque but she certainly had her problems in life. She seems to have been overlooked and ignored in school because she wasn't academic as well as having to miss a lot of school because of polio.
I know one of her sons died in a car crash when he was a teenager which must have been absolutely horrendous for her.
I loved the scene of her and her two brothers in the boat. It was just gorgeous.
BTW I don't remember the bit about knitted swimsuits??
Even to this day if you are at school at not good academically or good at sports, you are often overlooked by teachers and other kids. Its good to show that you can make a real success out of your lift
