    A fascinating anthology of stories by women writers most of whom were writing during the Second World War or the years immediately following its endViewed as a whole this collection offers a rich tapestry depicting the different facets of women’s lives during this period – from stoic mother and caregiver to headstrong Land Girl or factory worker to intrepid journalist or correspondent We see individuals anxiously awaiting the return of loved ones; women grieving for lives that have been lost and marriages that have faded or turned sour The mood and atmosphere on the Home Front are vividly conveyed through stories of nights in the air raid shelters and the emotional impact of the Blitz Plus there are glimpses of Europe too from the ravages of war torn France to the tensions in Romania as the conflict edges ever closer To read my full reviews please visit

    A must read for anyone interested in how women writers depicted the role of women World War Two Fans of Virago and Persephone will love it

    I picked this up at a local library sale to put in my short story bookbox but didn't get round to reading it in time But now I've read it and was suitably impressed by how different the stories are Although they tend to be from the women's point of view they varied so much that I didn't get bored Face of My People was good as was The Black Madonna and The Iconoclasts but my favourite was Mysterious Kor by Elizabeth Bowen mainly as it invoked a sense of mystery and supernatural otherness

    This book was interesting enough but depressing Some other collections of stories I've read from WWII at least touch on funny things that happen even in the midst of war but thesenot so much I read them in fits and starts because I couldn't take than a couple at a time Not to say they weren't well written although I do uibble with some of the selections made For example the Mrs Miniver story included was not I thought one of the better onesAll in all I'm glad I read it but it's probably not one I'll revisit

    These are very readable stories that give women's perspectives on WWII I enjoyed reading war stories that weren't about battles The stories about the London Blitz were particularly interesting
