ROSIE: SCENES FROM A VANISHED LIFE

Synopsis

Rose Tremain grew up in post-war London, where both food and affection were fiercely rationed. Briskly dispatched to boarding-school in Hertfordshire at the age of ten, she begins to feel like an imprisoned castaway. But slowly the teenage Rosie escapes from the cold world of the Fifties, into a place of inspiration and dedicated teachers, where a young writer is suddenly ready to be born.
