Anne's diary gives a tantalising sketch of a happy outgoing person who documented her incredibly hard physical work with a saint-like lightness of touch..... Her artisitic nature is revealed in her desciptions of nature... What a vanished world to record. Though still recent in historical terms, it represents a bygone age, and Anne's diary is a treasure as it tells it just as it was.--The NFU's British Farmer & Grower (South-East) February 2012
Reading the book The Milk Lady at New Park Farm is like discovering some long forgotten memories of life during the Second World War. Even if you are too young to have those memories in the first place, you are vivdly transported, through the reading of this honest account of British rural life against the backdrop of war.--The Art Observer, December 2011
It reaches a wider audience: those who are interested in the land girls and in the Second World War; those who are interested in farming; animal lovers; and those who simply enjoy a feel good story.--The Cumberland & Westmorland Herald, October 2011

The book gives the reader a very good insight as to what it was like to work in agriculture as a land army girl during WW2.
Anne's account in diary form gives the reader a fascinating insight into her day to day life working on a farm in Hampshire doing her bit for the war effort.
A recommended read for anyone who would like to know more about life on the Home Front in Britain, on the farm in WW2.
tells an important story about the role of one feisty woman on the Home Front during the Second World War . It is authentic and beautiful , with excellent illustrations . It should be made into a film as the visual content is so graphic. As the Milk Lady in the New Forest she has a poignant and at times humorous story to tell. Peter the pony is not an easy creature to tame but the bond is made.Read on.....
