Product description

Review

a marvellous account of the decency and bravery of our people in a quiet, unexceptional corner of England. Simon Heffer
--Sunday Telegraph 13.3.2011

'Her wonderfully authentic diary from 1940 vividly evokes the way country people coped.' --Val Hennessy in the Daily Mail

"a minor classic of the Second World War." --This England Magazine - Autumn 2011

"This inspiring and interesting read will leave you feeling warmed by a community standing strong in their fear and determined to do their bit." --The People's Friend - April 2011

"One can't help feeling awed by the courage and generosity of the real people populating this record, Margery Allingham included." --Dorothy L Sayers Society Bulletin - May 2011

"This stirring tribute to the people of rural England." --Mail on Sunday - 1.5.2011

"The book is a hymn to the strength of a village when threatened from outside." --W I Life - Nov/Dec 2011

From the Publisher

The Oaken Heart was published almost as soon as it was received in 1941. This fourth edition, published seventy years later, includes diaries, letters, editorial notes and recollections from some of the people still living in Essex who were children when Allingham wrote. A wealth of contemporary photographs should help readers today feel the reality of the ordinary village dwellers who Allingham came to admire so profoundly. In speaking so eloquently and accurately for her own village she reflects the experience of so many other communities at that extraordinary time.
