'I haven't smirked, giggled and laughed out loud at a book so much in quite sometime. A perfect and delightful book' Savidge Reads 'I haven't read anything so funny for many years. They rank alongside E M Delafield's The Diary Of A Provincial Lady, and George and Weedon Grossmiths' The Diary of A Nobody' Susan Hill, Good Housekeeping 'Anyone who wants to get the feel of the period must read these short letters' Daily Telegraph 'Dennys writes in simple, elegant prose about garden parties and elderly colonels, about flighty young women and daunting, tweedy ladies avid to repel the invader with their own hands; and the comedy she describes is embellished by little drawings as accomplished as her prose' Irish TimesVom Verlag:
The war is now in its third year and although nothing can dent the unwavering patriotism of Henrietta and her friends, everyone in the Devonshire village has their anxious moments. Henrietta takes up weeding and plays the triangle in the local orchestra to take her mind off things; the indomitable Lady B, now in her late seventies, partakes in endless fund-raising events to distract herself from thoughts of life without elastic; and Faith, the village flirt, finds herself amongst the charming company of the American GIs. With the war nearing its end, hope seems to lie just around the corner and as this spirited community muddle through, Lady B vows to make their friendships outlast the hardship that brought them together.
