Rumer Godden
10 Dec. 1907 - 8 Nov. 1998


The title of the second volume of her autobiography is from an Indian proverb: "Everyone is a house with four rooms, a physical, a mental, an emotional and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time but unless we go into every room every day, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person".
