  "Entertaining, humor and insightful" by bookmoot (see profile) 03/12/12

This book is a thoughtful look at life in post WWII England. The main character, Mildred is one of those "excellent women" who serve their church and others. Her wry observations are full of humor and the book is an easy read. Very interesting look at British society and life following the war (food shortages, buildings still in rubble from bombings) . Probably one of the best book discussions we have ever had. Highly recommended.
