This book was totally spoiled for me by a complete lack of commas, you're instead of your and full stops in the wrong place ie I'm going to say goodnight to Willy and then eat Pat.

The characters weren't particularly well drawn and the book came to rather an abrupt halt. It is a great pity that it wasn't proof read and that the author didn't use a grammar checker.

This book really didn't grab my interest at all. Way too many characters to identify with any of them. Infact, there were so many characters it was like treading treacle trying to remember WHO they were; there was no central character as such. Far too sentimental and sugary sweet to be enjoyable and believable. It felt at times that this book was written to use as many WWll phrases as possible - "digging for victory" being very overused. It almost felt like the author had an obligation to write 'x' amount of words for the book and was just writing repetitive rubbish

I'm not sure if it was due to the Kindle download but some of the sentences just didn't make sense, no matter how many times I re-read it. As for the punctuation? Full stops in the middle of sentences or no full stop when there should have been and commas in wrong places which spoiled the flow of the book. Needless to say I won't be buying the follow-up book.

The idea of this book is great but so badly written its as though the author couldnt find and substance in the characters. It flitted from one to another with no explanations. I found that there was no depth to the book at all. Thank goodness it was so cheap. I only read 3 chapters and had to put it away with annoyance.

This is a good story, but I thought there were too many people introduced at once at the beginning of the book, to remember all the names of the villagers and who they were I had to keep going back to the first few pages until they all slotted into place when they did it was a very enjoyable book.

A heartwarming story that needs a sequel. You can relate to the families their hopes & fears and a sequel would be welcome

What a wonderful novel, so full of superb describing words, about the exploits of people during the war, and the things they accomplished to help produce food, and carry on farming in rural villages.

An intriguing and factual story. Well written.

I enjoyed the variety of characters and their different lives coming together to show a true sense of community-
