    Just like reading the TV series

    Great book ... Having only finished watching the 2nd series of the TV series a few days before starting this book, it really was like continuing the TV series, except reading it instead of watching it. Picked up right where the TV series left off. Highly recommended for anyone who was a fan of the TV series.

    Northern Rural Life

    I have not seen the television show that this book is an offshoot from so the characters were completely new to me. Fortunately that is not a prerequisite as everything you need to know about the women is within these pages. In fact, I think it may be a boon to have come to it fresh as this means I have no preconceptions about how people should behave and what their "voice" is - somehow they are seem to have a bad case of RP in my head (think I've seen too many world war 2 epics where even the charlady speaks like she was presented at Court). The plot itself deals with the trials and tribulations of a small Northern Village during the privations of World War 2. The biggest thing that stood out to me was the story of the "trekkers" who made their way in to the Countryside every night to escape the bombardment of Liverpool and then made their way back in the morning to work and attend school. This was not something I had been aware happened and led me to do some further investigation on the phenomenon. Although the people of Great Paxford do provide for them you have to wonder if this would have been the case with all food supplies being jealously guarded due to rationing would they have been willing to part with so much of their vegetable harvest to strangers? I did find the all encompassing power of the WI in the village a little offputting if I'm being honest. As an organisation they have done a lot of good but the way they run the village is quite disturbing. I did like that although we had Jerusalem there was no Jam and the book did show how involved they became with various war efforts whilst trying to hold on to their pacifism. The characters themselves are good mixture but they are a little stereotypical and not as nuanced as I would have liked. I feel that this is probably because we are supposed to have either seen the television series so already know them or as the author is used to writing scripts rather than novels he is used to actors putting that meat on to the character's bones. I was vaguely interested in the burgeoning relationship between Angela and John Smith and may just pick up the next book to find out how that turns out (very daring for the times and the location).
