Butterflies of a Brief Summer: Mémoires - les souvenirs sont faits de tels moments

Patricia Ludgate

Is a life to be measured by decades lived, or by formative moments shared? On reflection, do we hold dearest the ephemeral nature of our experiences, each perfect in its own time and place?

The writer shares the stories that shaped her personal journey from a simple childhood in post-World War II Australia, to a gradual and ultimately intensive experience of the world and its complexities as a member of Australia's diplomatic corps. A light-hearted autobiography set in places as diverse as Australia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Poland and Tanzania, with escapades through many lands in between.

"Embrace each perfect moment. Hold no expectation. All is a gift."
