About the Author:

Kinta Beevor was born in 1911 at Northbourne in East Kent. After her father joined up in the First World War, her mother, Lina Waterfield, took Kinta and her brother out to Florence, where she started the British Institute. Kinta's childhood was spent at Poggio Gherardo and at her parents' castle in Aulla. She returned to England, married and had three sons, one of whom is the historian Antony Beevor. She lived at Eastry, close to where she was born, but she still returned to Italy each year. Kinta Beevor died in August 1995.
