3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable light read of the 1940's era 16 April 2012
By Xsara
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a great light read of the 1940's era and includes what the lifestyle was like during this time. It covers jobs, roles, social issues and the home. I gave it three stars as I expected it to cover more on the fashion and beauty styles however it only touched upon this area.

A superb book about the Forties. Something I have always been interested in. A great slice of life, fashions, people, food. So many things, you have to read it. Highly enjoyable. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in this great time of change, sadness, hope and fun.
