In 1976 Diane Perry - by then known by her Tibetan name, Tenzin Palmo - secluded herself in a remote cave, 13,000 feet up in the Himalayas, cut off from the world by mountains and snow. She entered the cave aged thirty-three and left it when she was forty-five; there she faced unimaginable cold, wild animals, floods and rockfalls, grew her own food and slept in a traditional wooden meditation box, three-feet square - she never lay down. In 1988 she emerged from the cave with a determination to build a convent in northern India to revive the Togdenma lineage, a long-forgotten female spiritual elite. From living as a mendicant on 50 a year, she became a globe-trotting fund-raiser, giving lecture tours. Diane Perry had grown up in London's East End, the daughter of a fishmonger. At the age of eighteen, she read a book on Buddhism, and realised that this might fill a long-sensed void in her life and began saving from her wages as a shop assistant. She left England for India at the age of twenty in 1963. After a long period of searching she entered a monastery, becoming the only woman among hundreds of men, and from there grew her determination to break down the prejudice that has excluded women from the path to enlightenment for thousands of years.

Every family has its secrets, but it was a huge surprise to the three young Forbeses, fresh from a country vicarage, to discover that their grandmother was a famous actress. Sent to live with her in bombed-out, wartime London, they soon discovered that they were expected to follow in the family footsteps - to the footlights!

As an actress herself, Noel Streatfeild was familiar with all the details of the backstage world of the theatre. She has created an authentic, perceptive and vivid picture of theatrical life - from stage school to auditions to performances.

About the Author

Noel Streatfeild was born in Sussex in 1895 and was one of three sisters. Although she was considered the plain one she ended up leading the most glamorous and exciting life! After working in munitions factories and canteens for the armed forces when WWI broke out, Noel followed her dream of being on stage and went to RADA where she became a professional actress.

She began writing children's books in 1931 and Ballet Shoes was published in 1936. She quickly became one of the most popular authors of her day. When she visited Puffin exhibitions, there were queues right out of the building and all the way down The Mall. She was one of the first winners of the Carnegie Medal and was awarded an OBE in 1983. Noel Streatfeild lived in London. She died in 1986.
