Womaen were fantastic on what they did at this time. Patience Tomlinson is a good narrator. For me this is a listen that I listen a bit then more on another day!

I love Nicolette she has a great voice and defines the characters so well. Story I enjoyed too. Read several stories recently about same period. Took far longer decorating my christmas tree as I wanted to continue listening.

I keep losing track of what is going on. I am going to finish the book and will certainly edit my review. I find it a bit wishy washy to be honest, so far been listening for over 3 months.

Reach for the Sky cover art

Are there still men as courageous as this?

Listing for the ?? time. One interesting thing I have recently learned is that the frontal cortex of the brain does not mature till early 20's. This is the reasoning part of the brain, cause and result. The reason so many teenagers are impossible. Bader obviously did not have the frontal cortex in action. He was a marvellous man and did so much for the war, such a pity they did not have children. I really recommend this book even if you have, as I have, seen the film numerous times.

The image of butterflies around is so lovely.

I like Lucinda Riley she always writes well. Not sure about Nicolette, although she has a good reading voice, she sounds far older making one feel the characters are far older than they are. Still the story is good, even if the ending is to be expected. Worth another listen.

This is the 4th book about land girls. I loved all of them but this is ruined by the reader Janine Birkett. Why change from the original reader? So many books are ruined by the narrator. I have listened to the others several times. Muddy Boots and Silk Stockings. The Girl at the garden Gate. Alices Girls and was looking forward to this one.

Found this book so interesting. A friend had told me about the girls, the most unattractive ones being sent there for husbands and I found this book so interesting on detail. Also explained my mothers attitude to life. She was not there but she was so imperious in the way she talked down to people she thought were below her. Same as some in this book. Dismissive of certain class of people, and unfortunately people were like that. Loved the visiting cards having to be presented before an invitation would be given. Must reread this book again sure many facts will appear that I did not register first time round!!

I enjoyed this story which is gentle not exciting. Typical BT, love the family history and details. Describes the war situation so well too. Difficult to comprehend haw awful things were in Germany. Looking forward to her next saga. Well researched too
