I love how this family's history was laid out via their own letters, journals, and other documents found in an old desk. The writer put together a book that was more interesting than fiction. I felt myself becoming invested in this family the more that I read.

A lifelong Londoner, Patricia Neate has been a teacher, marriage counsellor and family therapist. A fascination with human relationships, which provide the underlying texture of life in the past as in the present, drew the author inevitably to the story of the family who live so vividly in All My Darlings through their letters, diaries and notebooks.
