  • Excellent novel of women war workers in WW1 based very much on the author s experience Honest and unsentimental.Full review heavenali.wordpress 2014 0


  • One of my most often re read books about the First World War Superb, and a fitting companion to Helen Zennor Smith s Not So Quiet


  • I m marking as memoir, even though it s fiction, because it feels like it has truth than most books under that label Does that make sense I didn t always keep all of the characters straight is it Betty or Babs who s attached to that soldier After I finished the book, the critique I read made me believe the book s power is in the individual experiences melding into a portrayal of the masses.Spoiler ish It s WWI If he s a guy, he dies Probably.


  • I thought this sounded interesting, but you have to be in exactly the right frame of mind to read a book like this, written about events of 100 years ago It is no judgment on the book s merits to say the timing wasn t right for me to plunge in It could very well be that I will pick it up sometime in the future


  • Using her own experiences and those of her friends, Rathbone evokes the era of the Great War through the eyes of women who are as determined to do their bit as their brothers and sweethearts Rich with details about the tasks these women undertook, from nursing to munitions work, the novel reads like a fascinating biography.


  • Loved this book sometimes Loved the introduction line Throughout the literature of World War I the keening of a devastated generation insists on being heard Hated some of the dudes, loved the character Thrush.
