watermills Philippa Pearce - stories of a childhood in the mill house

Since today was a February 29th - a day that only happens in leap years, the BBC radio programme Open Book was all about how novels treat time. As part of the programme, an interview with Philippa Pearce, author of Tom's Midnight Garden, related how the book is based on her childhood, where she grew up in the 1920's living in the mill house in the Cambridgeshire village of Great Shelford, with her father the last in a family of millers.
