About the Book

This memoir tells of each sibling’s special connection to the family home, their experiences growing up and eventually moving on to create their own homes, and includes family photographs and a chapter from Mark O’Rourke, a country cousin who spent many happy days at Drynane. It provides a candid picture of life in Sydney in the 30’s – 50’s from the perspective of those children growing up in a home that was filled with love and touched by tragedy.

While Drynane is no longer standing (it was demolished, in the name of progress, in the late ‘60’s) the warm memories that it engendered in it’s former occupants lives on in this memoir.
