Summary

After the death of Emily Davis, school teacher and well-loved member of the local community, many of those who knew her cast their minds back to days past and to their memories of Emily.

Dolly Clare mourns her loss deeply but remembers with joy and warmth the long friendship they shared. She is joined in her reminiscences by Jane Draper, who started her teaching career under Emily’s guidance, and by those further afield - from London to America. This is both a poignant story of loss and a celebration of life, rich with affection.

Volume bad

Recording volume is hopeless. Gwen's every word tails off so I can hardly make it out.
