About this title
Weekly letters from a leprosy hospital in the foothills of the Himalayas form the basis of this memo of an English family living in Nepal in the 1970s. Battling with language learning; bartering in the bazaar; tackling home schooling for two boys and helping to run an international playgroup - these are just a few of the challenges Barbara Collier faces.Later, travelling with three children through Thailand and Burma proves an eventful experience. Sickness brings complications and the alteration of plans in their final year.About the Author:
After training as a nurse and midwife in London in the 1960s Barbara Collier concentrated on marriage and motherhood until her husband, Philip, an accountant, became Field Finance Director of the Leprosy Mission. Together with their three children under 7 they travelled to Asia in 1971. Based in Kathmandu, Nepal, she shared the adventure and challenge of third world living, with limited communication and hazardous transport as well as irregular water and electricity supplies. Barbara was glad of a sense of humour when Philip was away in India and the Far East and she faced numerous domestic crises. She enjoyed writing newsy letters and getting to know her local neighbours. Now a freelance writer, she looks back with gratitude for the privilege of experiencing life in the beautiful, developing country of Nepal.
