Female farming in "The War". A laughing, crying, gripping, writer-to-be's letters to her husband through five long years of separation... A moving must-read of feminism two generations before its time coupled with the real smell of Britain before and after Dunkirk. The fear and the relief
– Robert Boyd
I much enjoyed A Woman's War. Such a good insight into that period. There came a point when I could not put it down.
– Connie Harman
Every now and again as a journalist you hear a story that sounds interesting and the more you find out about it the more extraordinary it becomes. This is one of those.
"As a contemporary account of agriculture during World War II, and of women and children’s lives during the long absence of their men, these letters, spontaneous, unself-conscious and candid, are fascinating."
