"Wonderful...I fell immediately into her world, and was sorry when I reached the end." --Frances Mayes, author of Under the Tuscan Sun

The sparkling memoir of an idyllic, bohemian childhood in an enchanted Tuscan castle between the wars.

When Kinta Beevor was five, her father, the painter Aubrey Waterfield, bought the sixteenth-century Fortezza della Brunella in the Tuscan village of Aulla. There her parents were part of a vibrant artistic community that included Aldous Huxley, Bernard Berenson, and D. H. Lawrence. Meanwhile, Kinta and her brother explored the glorious countryside, participated in the region's many seasonal rites and rituals, and came to know and love the charming, resilient Italian people. With the coming of World War II the family had to leave Aulla; years later, though, Kinta would return to witness the courage and skill of the Tuscan people as they rebuilt their lives. Lyrical and witty, A Tuscan Childhood is alive with the timeless splendour of Italy.

Read information about the author

Ebook A Tuscan Childhood read Online! Kinta Beevor, born Carinthia Waterfield, daughter of Aubrey Waterfield, a painter, and Lina Waterfield, writer of Castle in Italy: An Autobiograpghy. Lina was the niece and ward of Janet Ross, also a writer, and the granddaughter of translator and author Lucie Duff Gordon, who wrote the Victorian best-seller Letters from Egypt (1865).

From the age of five and until she was sent to boarding school in England five years later, Kinta was raised in the Fortezza della Brunella in northern Tuscany, an inhospitable castle on a rock with views of the Carraras.

In 1933 she married Jack Beevor, a solicitor. Consequently Italy became the place to spent her holidays.

In 1993, at the age of 82, she published her first and only book, A Tuscan Childhood, the story of her youth in Italy.
