Seventeen-year-old Muriel Dearlove has weathered the Blitz unscathed, earning her keep in Miss Chapman's grocery shop. But with her sweetheart, Bill, away fighting and her friends conscripted into the WRENS and WAAF, life has become tedious for Muriel. Then one day an old friend returns from a stint in the Land Army. She is rosy cheeked and looks healthier than ever.
Desperate for the chance to broaden her horizons, Muriel signs up to become a Land Girl. But Muriel soon discovers that getting back to the land is not all about making hay in the sunshine.
Really good story! Nothing too gruesome. Nice insight into farm girls life during the war. Anne Dover reads it beautifully :-)
In the times the story in set. You feel like 1 òf the girls.
