Publishers Description: A wonderful collection of women, some famous, some completely unknown from different walks of life, talk to Mavis Nicholson about how they lived, worked, loved, managed during the war years and how lives were changed (or at least the lives of women since then) by their experiences. They were factory workers, entertainers, landgirls, mothers of evacuees, socialities, code-breakers, blackmarketeers, women who served in the forces. Their extraordinary frank stories uncover for almost the first time the vivid detail of women's lives, the make-do and mend, the new freedom that war gave them, but also the euphoria and depression which followed, the post-war adjustments that had to be made. Includes conversations with actress Molly Weir, writer Mary Wesley, secret agent 'Odette', Pauline Crabbe (Council for the Unmarried Mother), illustrator Kathleen Hale (of ORLANDO THE MARMALADE CAT fame), singer Anne Shelton's last interview, and many others from all over Britain).
