If you saw the PBS series, then you will be familiar with the characters from this program. The television series had been commissioned by the BBC to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of World War Two, following the lives of four girls in the Women’s Land Army. Moore, who wrote the series script, picks up where the series left off.
War on the home front has its own challenges and being a young lady with a past who is married to a vicar is only the beginning. It seems that everyone has their secrets in this charming sequel to the popular television series. This is book I in a three-part series to be completed by Moore, who has obviously done his research. My only complaint is that it reads like a lot of British television dramas, less literary than soap opera.
I always tell people that Clayton "just" runs the business, I am the one who reads the books. We like to travel and no matter where we go, I've got books tucked in every piece of luggage, audio books downloaded on my phone and a batch of books on my Kindle.
