Cornish Years takes her to Truro, Exmouth and Exeter, and from there to Camborne, Liverpool and Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford. A Stranger in the Midlands covers the years between 1931 and 1947, when she taught at King Edwards High School for Girls in Birmingham. As well as a substantial introduction, the book includes a short biography of Anne Treneer, continuing her story to her death in 1966, and a descriptive bibliography of her writings.

About the Author:

Brenda Hull is an independent researcher in Cornwall and honorary editor of the Journal of the Cornwall Association of Local Historians. Patricia Moyer is a visiting scholar in the Department of English, University of North Carolina and an honorary research fellow in the Centre for Women's Studies, University of Exeter. She lives and writes for part of each year in Anne Treneer country in Cornwall.

Review:

“The books are full of delights - evocations of the landscape in Cornwall, of the Malvern Hills and the Bredon County. And her insights into the educational system in which she taught, with occasional theraputic breaks, for forty or so years are fascinating. How she would have hated the Gradgrind and Bounderby ethos of current education. The books create a picture of a character talented, loveable and essentially wise.” –Devon and Cornwall Notes and Queries, Spring 1999 (Devon and Cornwall Notes and Queries)

“There is much here to reflect upon, about gender, identity, work and women's lives. But that is only part of the story. Treneer writes with extraordinary sensitivity about her childhood in Cornwall, and about the countryside and natural history wherever she lived and worked. She has a sharp eye for detail, and an irreverent sense of humour. Her story is absorbing, and deserves a wider audience.” –Social History Bulletin, Vol. 23 No. 2 Autumn 1998

(Social History Bulletin)

“Anne Treneer was the last of the great stylists among Cornish authors writing in English. She takes her place with "Q" and A.L. Rowse at the high water mark of good writing. She is a mistress of the arresting phrase, the happy shaft of wit, the illuminating picture of life around her, continually celebrating the Cornwall she knew and loved.” –Cornish World,September/November 1998

(Cornish World)

“Anne Treneer's books have been out of print for too long. Her autobiography is a celebration-of Cornwall, of a love of life and literature, of the joy of education, of everything that is positive and pleasurable-and a fine example of the craft of the wordsmith which makes a thoughtfully written book deceptively easy to read.” –CALH Newsletter, Autumn 1998

(CALH Newsletter)

“ . . . some of the best writing about Cornwall which has ever been published, her descriptions surging with the shape and colour of the land itself . . .” –Devon Life, September 1998

(Devon Life)
