Author Penelope Lively, who is made a Dame in the New Year's Honours List, is arguably best known for her Booker-winning novel Moon Tiger. It went on to confound all expectations and clinch the 1987 prize, beating favoured literary powerhouses Iris Murdoch and Peter Ackroyd to the title. But as an award-winning children's author and the writer of more than 50 books, including How It All Began - published in November - her popularity is not limited to highbrow literary circles.

World War II turns the privileged lives of Jane and Edward upside down. Left in the care of servants, they suddenly experience a whole new world - land-girls and concientious objectors. But their enchanted life is shattered when Edward is sent away to school.
