An inspiring and very interesting read

This was a wonderful book full of the rich history of the early days of the WI from its inception and with special emphasis on the role played by rural WI women during WW2 in so many various ways. It's been an education to learn all they were able to achieve, with an enormous lack of any of the modern cons we so easily take for granted. They coped with all demands from central government with dedication and also remarkable cheerfulness. A very impressive factual history compiled from the notes of ordinary women who became an extraordinary group. So glad I came across this gem.
