An Australian lady returns to a place she loves: England 1933-1934. In 1927, Elizabeth Campbell returned home to Melbourne broken-hearted at leaving England after attending the Royal College of Music in London. In May 1933 she makes her long-awaited return as part of the RCM's Jubilee celebrations, recording each day of her year's stay, painting a highly eloquent and compelling portrait of divided Depression-era Britain's people, towns and countryside. Seen through the eyes of a passionate observer wholly enamoured with their subject, the intimate social history she presents leaves the reader feeling they have lived every minute walking in her footsteps.
