    "Entertaining & well written"

    An entertaining book about lives of landgirls and a land army warden living in a hostel at Lower Post Stone Farm in 1943. The story revolves around the 'Post Stone Girls' and the other characters who live and work at the Farm. Their individual stories interweave into an account of one year in the lives of very different people brought together by the war.
    Although I enjoyed this undemanding book, I was a little disappointed by the end which left the story hanging. I later discovered that there is a sequel; 'The Girl at the Farmhouse Gate', which I will review separately. Rather than being a complete book in itself, this feels a bit like half a book, which continues with the sequel. The resulting two volumes are a bit long winded and the second book is very repetative. It might have been better to combine the two books and edit the result.
    Having said that it is a worthwhile and well written book to listen to and I did enjoy it.
