Publisher's Summary

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.

what did I just listen to

the narration was great, but not much to work with, Its there a story in there somewhere? have no clue what the plot line was, how it resolved or what the point was, OK it was about the land girls, but had all the plot of a magazine article. Normally a book has a story line and an outcome os some sort, Is there more? Do we guess what happens?... what a waste of time, I actually wish I could just get my credit back.... Just plain MEH is the best I can say. I have no clue what the rave reviews could be for.

very enjoyable story line hope for a sequel

The narration was good and the characters well developed but the ending leaves you wanting more story line.

Fabulous!

Really good story! Nothing too gruesome. Nice insight into farm girls life during the war. Anne Dover reads it beautifully :-)

Ok book

I found this story a bit slow and not very exciting as other books I have read.
