In The Great Western Beach (2008), Emma Smith recalled her childhood in Cornwall; this memoir takes up her story from the age of twelve, when the family moved to a Dartmoor village. Within a few years Britain had gone to war, and Emma was working in London, already en route to becoming a writer. Long since a successful novelist, she makes of her own young life an engaging and fast-paced tale ending on a glorious note - her wedding.
