"England for me is home and New Zealand, where I have spent the last thirty years, sadly is not." After living for many years in New Zealand and still unable to feel that it was her home, Glenis Carlton decides to return to live and work in Britain. She compares the country that she left in 1957 with the Britain of the nineties, recording her impressions, the fulfilment of her expectations, and sometimes her disillusionment. She describes what it was like to be an immigrant in New Zealand, feelings which many who arrived from England in the fifties will relate to. There are amusing anecdotes and observations, told with frankness and humour, as the author travels and works as a market research interviewer, as a steward at the Royal Albert Hall. Returning to the Derbyshire village of her childhood, where memories of the years during and after the war are revived, she also visits other places of her youth, the Cotswolds, Normandy, Paris and London, a city of poverty and wealth, and unaccountability, but still a much-loved city for all that. But where exactly her home will be becomes less of an issue. The book is a progression in maturity, a journey back in time and space to find the 'essential self'. It should give inspiration, especially to women and those living alone. That life can have possibilities, choices. That we should believe in ourselves. Glynis Smy - author (Ripper, My Love & Maggie's Child): 'Music of the Spheres: An Unfinished Journey', is a delightful read. This well-written, descriptive memoir shares the ups and downs of a woman returning to her native, Great Britain, nearly a lifetime living in New Zealand.
