About this product
- DescriptionWinds of Change in a Sleepy Sussex Village depicts aspects of the lives of well-kwn people such as Sir Hubert and Lady Maud Parry, and the Garrett family (including sisters Millicent Fawcett, Elizabeth Garrett Anderson and Agnes Garrett, along with their cousin Rhoda Garrett), especially regarding women's suffrage. We delve into Peter Pan creator J. M. Barrie, who based his characters on families here in Rustington. Who in the village was related to royalty? Which infamous character regularly stayed at the vicarage and what developments occurred as a result? What happened of importance in the village just prior to D-Day? All is revealed in this book by Mary Taylor B.E.M. and her son Graeme, showing that this so-called sleepy village is anything but!
