9781780332468: Land Girls

With the country's men at war, it falls to the land girls to pitch in and do their bit...Stella arrives at Hallows Farm in her Rayon stockings, having just waved goodbye to the love of life - naval officer Philip. Agatha has just graduated from Cambridge; life on the Farm is certainly going to offer her a different kind of education. Prue, a hairdresser from Manchester, is used to painting the town red, not manual labour. Joe dreams of leaving the family farm and becoming a fighter pilot. But with the arrival of these three beautiful young women, there's enough to keep him busy on the farm for the time being...Work is hard and the effects of war start to take their toll on the three women. But as the bonds of friendship start to form and excitement builds as the RAF dance looms, maybe life in the countryside isn't so bad after all?

Review:

Angela Huth's riveting novel...is evocative and entertaining. Mail on Sunday A good story, told with wit and a keen observation of detail. Times Literary Supplement Huth is good on the rhythms of long marriages, like that of the Lawrences, and on the texture of life in rural wartime England. The Times Huth is a master of this sort of novel, steeped in period atmosphere and gentle irony. Daily Telegraph Huth knows how to keep you turning the pages. Guardian Huth's controlled, elegant style has been compared to Jane Austen, but her talent is entirely original. -- Penny Perrick The Times Piquant, witty and entertaining Tatler It has me in its grip and I couldn't rest until the final page...It is satisfying and rare to read a book whose characters are dealt the fates we feel they deserve...A beautifully spun tale that absorbs without the need to address 'issues'.
