Publisher's Summary

With the country's men at war, it falls to the land girls to pitch in and do their bit....

Stella arrives at Hallows Farm in her Rayon stockings, having just waved goodbye to the love of life - naval officer Philip. Agatha has just graduated from Cambridge; life on the Farm is certainly going to offer her a different kind of education. Prue, a hairdresser from Manchester, is used to painting the town red, not manual labour. Joe dreams of leaving the family farm and becoming a fighter pilot. But with the arrival of these three beautiful young women, there's enough to keep him busy on the farm for the time being....

Work is hard and the effects of war start to take their toll on the three women. But as the bonds of friendship start to form and excitement builds as the RAF dance looms, maybe life in the countryside isn't so bad after all?

Angela Huth has written 11 novels, four collections of short stories as well as plays for radio, TV, and the stage. Two of her earlier novels - Virginia Fly Is Drowning and Sun Child - she adapted for the BBC and Land Girls was made into the 1998 feature film The Land Girls. She is also a well-known freelance journalist, critic, and broadcaster. She is married to a don, lives in Oxford and has two daughters.

    "Thank Goodness for an Epilogue"
    Would you try another book from Angela Huth and/or Caroline Lennon?

    No.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Angela Huth again?

    I was not impressed with her writing style.


    Did Caroline Lennon do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I was not impressed with the narration and do not think Lennon did a good job in differentiating the characters. Huth on the other hand did an okay job in using character voice in writing to let the reader distinguish the Land Girls personality.


    Could you see Land Girls being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I heard that this book was made into a movie. I was not enamored with the plot and do not think I would waste my time to see the movie.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was definitely not one of my favorite listen. I was very bored with the mundane events that took place in the year that the Land Girls worked on the farm during the second world war. I got the picture very quickly that a lot of "love" took place because of the not knowing what the future had to bring these young people. Thank goodness there was an epilogue for that tied up very loose ends and said "The End". The epilogue was the best part of the book.
