|Plot Summary of Blue Remembered Hills|
|"Rosemary Sutcliff, author of many famous children's historical novels, tells the story of her own childhood and young adulthood (up to the publication of her first book) in Blue Remembered Hills. Rosemary had juvenile arthritis; she spent a lot of time in orthopedic hospitals as a child, and she was, to varying degrees, handicapped all her life. This book is the story of how she lived with her disability and how she became a writer in a time when disabled people, particularly women, were treated as helpless children all their lives. "
