Scope and Content

Three Lady Eleanor Holles School exercise books which all contain fragments of what appears to be an early novel about a family named Thomas, written by Gaye Hicyilmaz. There is no clear development of the story across the three exercise books, but all contain different parts of a story which appears to feature similar characters and similar events, although some names change across the three books. The story appears to be set in 1967/8, which suggests that, although it is written in school exercise books, the story was written after Gaye Hicyilmaz had left school.

Related Material

There may be some connection between this early novel and 'The Medal', see GHi/01/07, as the characters in that story share a surname with several characters in the untitled novel.
