I really enjoyed this book. It's a well-written slice-of-life story and it's easy to feel right away that you know these people and care about what happens to them. Though they come from quite different middle-class backgrounds, the women made and kept their commitments to learn to work the land, and didn't waste time or energy in petty squabbles; they just did what needed to be done. The main story runs for about a year, beginning in mid-1941, when life in this Dorset (southern England) area isn't yet too badly impacted by the bombings. While rationing is in force, in this farming area it's less difficult to manage.

It's interesting, touching, bitter-sweet, funny and bawdy, well worth your time to read.

I enjoyed the Land Girls primarily due to its glimpse of girls/women during WWII.
