Turn Left at the Daffodils | [Elizabeth Elgin]

Turn Left at the Daffodils

Carrie thought her life was mapped out: marriage to her fiancé, followed by the family she so craves. But as war escalates, she defies everyone's wishes and joins the ATS. Miles away in Leeds, newly orphaned Nan can hardly wait to join the forces. Awaiting the two new arrivals is Evie, newly wed and blissfully happy. As the three women aid the war effort, they become as close as sisters, helping each other through the trials and tribulations of war: a time of tears, laughter, and much soul-searching.

Publisher's Summary

Carrie thought her life was mapped out: marriage to her fiancé, followed by the family she so craves. But as war escalates, she defies everyone's wishes and joins the ATS, leaving the sleepy hamlet of Nether Hutton for Southgate Lodge. Miles away in Leeds, newly orphaned Nan can hardly wait to join the forces and leave her troubled past behind. Awaiting the two new arrivals is Evie, newly wed and blissfully happy. As the three women aid the war effort, they become as close as sisters, helping each other through the trials and tribulations of war: a time of tears, laughter, and much soul-searching.

    Story
    "Delightful"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The story centres around 3 young women, Nan, Evie & Carrie who enlist in the ATS. It gives such an insight into what it must have been like for women in England during World War 2 when life as they knew changed so dramatically.

    The Narrator was brilliant and brought each character to life and kept the story moving along at a steady pace and I found myself hoping that everything would work out for the 3 girls.

    This book is sometimes funny and sometimes sad but throughout it shows the indomitable spirit of the British people as they fought for freedom.

    This story will stay with me for sometime.

    "Really Enjoyable"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Turn Left at the Daffodils to be better than the print version?

    Not having read the print version, I can only review the audio which being unabridged gives the full story and is read by a narrator with a good grasp of the British regional accents required.


    What other book might you compare Turn Left at the Daffodils to, and why?

    The style I would compare to Catherine Cookson in that the story is telling the story of the strong female characters.


    Which character – as performed by Patricia Gallimore – was your favourite?

    I particularly liked the dramatisation of Nan, a Liverpudlian teenager who joins the ATS in the second world war.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I spent extra time listening to this book than I normally would an audiobook as I really wanted to know what happened to the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I would be interested to know if there is going to be a sequel. I'm sure there is an additional story out there for all 3 characters.
