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.
I could do other stuff whist being read too
No it's perfect as it is with the current title
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.
The style I would compare to Catherine Cookson in that the story is telling the story of the strong female characters.
I particularly liked the dramatisation of Nan, a Liverpudlian teenager who joins the ATS in the second world war.
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.
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.
"Turn Left @ the Daffodils"
Brilliant - Typical WW2. Very well written & read. Has a deep plot & excellent characters who you really feel that you know by the time you finish listening!
"One word discribes this book brilliant"
I just loves this book and hope to find more by this author. This was very easy listening most enjoyable.
