    In September 1939 housewife and mother Nella Last began a regular diary that lasted for 30 years. The account that she left of life during the Second World War is moving, fascinating, and unique. While Nella's younger son joined the army, she and the rest of the family tried to adapt to the transformed rhythms of life in Barrow-in-Furness, which suffered terribly from enemy bombing raids. Writing each day for the "Mass-Observation" project, Nella's diary entries tell a powerful story about the war years.

    Patricia says: "The world needs more Nella Lasts!"
    "Nella Last's War"
    Overall

    A great book, about amazing times in World War II in England. The homefront stories. Touching. Made me, again, admire the British people for their courage and ability to stand up to the disasters of the war.
    The story is the real diaries of Mrs. Nella Last and I wish that the home office did not loose so many pages. Every word is a pearl and the lose of some chapters is very sad.

    Story

    Jane Austen's acclaimed comedy of manners contains a truly memorable cast of characters, including the snobbish Mrs Ferrers, impetuous Marianne, selfish John Dashwood, and his awful, grasping wife. Annette Crosbie captures all the wit and charm of the romance in this BBC Radio 4 Woman's Hour reading.

    Joseph R says: "A Satisfying Dramatisation"
    "dramatised????"
    Overall

    This is not a dramatization of the book.
    It is just a reading and a little annoying reading at that.
