This book presents a survey of her childhood in a Scottish manse, her years in the exciting world of Glasgow Art Nouveau around the turn of the century, of her marriage to the painter E. A. Taylor and their life in Paris at the time of the First World War, and of their new post-war world centered on their home, The Greengate in Kirkcudbright.
