Summary

Maddy lives with her grandmother in a tumbledown farmhouse in the Yorkshire Dales. The house has been in the family for generations, but her grandmother is struggling to cope. She is determined that no matter what happens, the two of them will not be forced into the workhouse.

Though life is tough, Maddy manages to gain a scholarship to the local school. As war is declared, Maddy and her friends join up, leaving the beautiful Dales for the dangerous work of manning the Ack Ack sites.

First time audible listen

Beginning of each chapter was sometimes difficult to hear but otherwise enjoyed this audible book. Have always read books myself before. Narrator very clear and keeps your interest.

Not great. Would suit children’s fiction.

Simple writing, more suited to children. Very little about war time experiences. Probably won’t read this author again.
