When Jeannie and Derek Tangye withdrew to a clifftop flower farm in Cornwall, sophisticated London society protested, but an even wider circle was enriched by the enchanted life they shared and which Derek recorded in the MINACK CHRONICLES. Jeannie died in 1986, and, in tribute to her extraordinary personality, her husband has written this portrait of their marriage. All the delight of the MINACK CHRONICLES is here- the daffodils, the donkeys, the Cornish magic. And all the fizzle and pop of champagne days at the Savoy is captured as Jeannie dazzles admirers from Danny Kaye to Christian Dior.
