A charming story of six women who meet up in England when their Air Force husbands get stationed there. The story spans several decades.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Being a military brat myself I could relate to the young wives. My mother was one of them, it brought back many memories as a child growing up in a very tight knit extended family. It definitely was a unique experience.

I was a bit turned off by the title of this book but once I started into it, I realy liked it. Follows five women for about 4 decades, but don't try to determine who you are most like because there is a twist in every personality. Fun Quick beach read.

A group of women whose husbands are stationed at a remote airbase in England develop a friendship that carries them through decades and changes they never imagined. A quick read, but it takes forever to sort out the characters, their husbands, their children, and their various extended family members. Plus there's a romance at the very end that comes out of nowhere and just smacks of author-desperation to tie up every dangling loose end.

I expected this to be a bit of fluff. It was not that at all. To me this book was all about showing the continuing roller coaster of life. You go up, you go down and it never stops. The author highlighted this truth of mountains and valleys through the friendships of a group of women beginning when they are all young military wives in the 50's going into the 90's. It felt like the book just ended but I suppose it was meant to as the book was written with the continual ups and down of life. So in the end it said to me that the story ends here but thier lives continue on as ever.

This book follows the life of Peggy Dewey and the women she meets as American Air Force wives in England following WWII. Shows how they adapt to the different directions their lives take them and the way they continue to support one another as they age. Light reading, but fun--lots of relational issues and observations on the way the world changed between the 1950s and 1990s.

I had a hard time getting into this book... so many characters... so many names... the women, their husbands, their children etc. etc. But in the end, I got enjoyed it. If you were ever a military wife or child, you will find yourself in this book.

Great story of woman's struggle to move from the 'housewife of the 50's' into the capable woman of the 90's. Enduring friendships, trials and disappointments of family and relationships. A great piece of mind candy!

It had so much potential, but it just didn't quite get there. Still an intersting insite into the lives of military wives.

Boring... I was looking forward to this story, but was so disappointed that I stopped reading after 60 pages. I couldn't relate to or like any of the characters.
