Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 9 January 2004
Put it this way, I wouldn't lend this to my nan. See, this book tells it like it was, no heroics, no stolen kisses at the NAAFI dance, just hard graft for women pitching in for the war effort, the horrible enevitability of war for the men and how they got through it. Not with powdered egg and Vera Lynn, but living life because it could be your last day on earth. Gloria is not your sweet little old lady. In fact, she is not a very likeable character at all (she swears, likes rude jokes and is trying to seduce a man at the nursing home!) but when you find out through her memories what she went through during wartime, you can sympathise with her. As I say, not your average wartime story but entertaining and thought provoking nonetheless.
